Recommended Posts

We have just had our noa2. We started at california in july last year, we got sent to texas in november, then we got sent back to california again in february 2011. We got an RFE and then a 6 week wait for a reply but as of today..... we are now officially approved!!!!! That was some wait - but worth it, now that part is over.
