Wife's POE at Chicago!

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife arrived in US yesterday evening :star: We are re-united after being apart for 7 months or so. It may not seem a long time for some, but for us it was a long time for sure. So happy to hold her in my arms again :star: She said everything was good, but was kinda confused because she said they didn't do all her finger prints at the customs in Chicago. Are they suppose to do all fingers?? I wasn't sure. She said the customs people weren't really helpful because it was super busy there. They just wanted her to get things done quickly. She didn't like Chicago airport at all, haha. She hated the POE there because that airport apparently is chaotic. But overall they didn't bother her at all there. Only thing is that her bags didn't arrive yesterday so we are still waiting for them. They were with her until Chicago, but than they didn't come to Cleveland.

Anyhow I just want to thank all the VJ family here especially sachinky for getting us through this. Without everyone's help here, I don't think we would have gotten it done so fast and would be so lost. Everyone is so helpful here and are always helping. I can't thank everyone for that and I won't forget it either. I will still be around and routing for everyone else to have their visa and to be with their loved one's soon :star:

Thank You All once again from the bottom of my heart :)
