Just a bit of exciting news to share :)

I filed the I-129f paperwork on May 11, the NOA-1 was on May 23, and we received notice that the petition was approved and the NOA-2 sent in the mail on June 17!

From what I've read this seems like record time, only 25 days between NOA-1 and NOA-2!!!!

Now we have to figure out what to do about tracking the next steps, preparing the packets, thinking about Interview, etc. etc. We are very pleasantly surprised and excited, as we had no idea that it would go through this quickly.

It's such a mind scramble to remain poised and ready in case it comes in three weeks or three months or... Ours came very quickly too, and we got a little frantic, but really you still have time to get everything done. Just knock out the medical and police reports (if you haven't yet) and you're nearly there with the heavy legwork. Congrats!
