against all that we must face in this world.

H, thanks a lot for posting about your case. and i am learning from your experience. My husband filed a petition for me and it was approved already just last month. Now I am waiting for the letter from NVC or the US Embassy. My husband is a US Citizen by the way. I would like to ask what courier did the NVC or USEM used to send you the mail. I am just wondering since my family name has been changed already and the courier might have difficulty locating me with my new surname. Is it Air21, LBC or DHS? If it's okay with you sending me a reply through my email add: villojan@yahoo.com, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much and God Bless.

The kids need to be registered and the fee paid (they always want the money ;) ) so they can get their sticker.

More info, with links to CFO in my link below.
