Hi Richi. Claudia received her welcome letter and greencard the same day and it was at 5 weeks post POE. Hang in there, you will get it very soon. Oh, if you have not received your SSN (if you don't have one from before) you can go to the SSN office 3 weeks post POE and apply. It then takes a couple of weeks to get it in the mail. Hope you two are doing well.

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
