Well I don't know how else to do this or get this message out. I am hoping that most if not all of us have finally reached out goal and have our loved ones living with us. I just wanted to personally thank the dedicated VJ Gurus who helped all of us along the VISA path. Boy what a long and winding road. I could not have done this without your support and help. To those who made March 2010 a 318 page brother and sister hood thanks to all of you also for asking questions, helping each other, listening to our stories of happiness and whoa and listening without judging to much :). We were and are all from different back grounds and cultures and became family even if it was for a short while. I will not forget these many hours spent on VJ... Well unless Alzheimer take my memory away. I wish all of you happiness and great fortune in your lives. Remember we all seek the same basic things and we should always keep this experience fresh in our hearts and minds. May all of you be blessed and feel peace for the rest of your days.

Your Friend and travel mate... :yes::thumbs:(L):energy::cry::dancing:

So there IS a happy end to this? Hard to believe at a point I am right now.

Thanks for posting. What a spirit-lifter, even though it seems like it took ages for your wife to finally get her visa and fly over to you.

Hey Ricardo, Yes good in deed. My wife made it here just in time to see the last big snow!!! She had never seen it personally and the was quite exciting for her. She did freeze but managed to enjoy it just the same. Now we are into much better weather and she is still cold most of the time.

Ricardo did the green card come in the mail or did you have to apply for it? My wife hasn't received anything yet. I even have to submit a form so they will return her original documents which were not returned during her interview or at the POE. Looking forward to a great Nashville Spring and Summer.Hope you have one too.

My wife hasn't received anything yet. I even have to submit a form so they will return her original documents which were not returned during her interview or at the POE.

** Don't feel bad I have to submit the G-Form so they can return the 4 birth certificates they have .. guess i'll mail it today/tomorrow. Did she get her social security card..? If not You should take her to the SSN and apply for it because even though the DS-230 says a number will be assigned they did not do it for her. She came in February here so would give it 3-4 weeks.

Looking forward to a great Nashville Spring and Summer.Hope you have one too.

Definitely ...

Thanks for the info Ricardo. Should be arriving in a week or two then. hope your folks are enjoying Music City. Are you still planning to move to Atlanta?

FYI I heard they are going to start giving free Yoga classes at the park by Farmers Market. Don't know if your folks would be interested or not. If so let me know and I will get more info for you.
