THis is a hard process....Bahadir and I waited for 216 days for our NOA2. This is the hardest to go through and to be away from the one you love. But staying positive is the most important , Patience is necessary! If you have a bad moment allow yourself a small amount of time to be upset and be sad....but then focus on him and think of all the great moments that make you want to be with him. This will get you through! No one breezes right through this...so dont put that pressure on yourself. This time apart is going to be like a blip in time . You will be laying in bed and smiling because you focused and made it through. Its worth the wait!!! We are waiting on our interview date and yes we have bad days...but we will be ok. Maybe not look at igors list everyday, this is about 10% of visas being worked on...it can make you nuts and seeing california approve people in 3 months.YOur estimated date is just that...estimate it could be before this date you receive the NOA2 or sometime after...just keep your love in your mind at all times!!! It will come!

Keep me update our your journey ..we are all here for you....

just i really do have my good and bad days!todays a bad day....it be easier if i had more family or friends i guess....i just want him home and im sure my kids prolly think hes never coming back:(im in pain...

You can do this! And we are here for you...Its hard for people to understand this situation anyway on the outside looking in. We all support each other and show concern and care! Dont ever think you are alone. We all have had these feelings and it is tough when you dont know the date all this waiting will end. But the day it comes you will relax and look back at these days for reference only. As of this weekend was 1 year since i flew to turkey. Bahadir and i have had amazing days and bad days...feeling so unbearable the stress of being apart.But this is our road. Rely on everyone here! We have a turkish group, ask any question and we will all do what we can...we understand you!

in a relationship that is long distant...most people arent supportive. Because they dont understand, they dont understand why we would go through all this for the one we have chosen best for our life. Let them have attitude because the best way to overcome that is to be happy and to be a real couple in front of the doubters. People would say to me "why not just chose someone here?" My response is always" Because we all get to chose the person we are in love with?" I tell people "I feel more love and respect from bahadir all the way across the world then i have ever with any man standing in front of me , why would I not fight for him" Its rare to find someone and we here at VJ know what you are thinking and feeling....remember when you feel alone, we all have those days...this process shouldnt be easy, and i say that because we arent allowed conventional means to get to know someone. We are tested so we know both people will stand through the bad and tough times. DOnt you think this is better then just being blissful in something not real? Clear your mind you can do this! He is worth it? He makes you feel you can fight till the end? Block out the doubters , because they dont know what you have. WHen you are alone, know one day this will all be a memory and make you appreciate the day he is in the home. Money is money and we all have great days and bad days. Believe me I have turned my life around to make life changes for the better of Bahadir coming here. Smile because you have found something most people can only wish for.....it will be....we are all here!

Bahadir and I waited for 7 months for our NOA2. We were seeing people getting approved in California in 3 months. This was a really tough time. We had to stop looking at what was happening with everyone else. We are currently waiting for our interview. I want to hit the fast forward button too!! Yes I learned of a lady who agreed to marry this man here. SHe just met him. I was so mad and I agree it feels wrong...but the best part is that when people do things the right way..they can live free, they can stand proud that they built a strong foundation. Bahadir is a very money conscience person and as of this month, Bahadir and i have been apart for 1 year...and this is tough, but the man i have he works 12 hours and still comes on everynight for a hour or 2. EVERYDAY...It is hard to be away , and you will have sad bad days...Focus on the next step...maybe this can keep your mind busy....

How did you guys meet??

just keep your faith, my husbands VERY depressed right now being away from his wife an kids an he cant handle it some people just cant but he keeps going with the thought if he gave up he'd never get us again so he drives through the hurt works hard an focus's on getting back, time spent apart is nothing compared to the time spent toghether in the future it just makes it that much sweeter when he is back knowing he wont ever have to leave, also i checked out your profile you asked when you get your interview, the process is a lil bit more complex than that, theres alot more to do between now and then more fees to pay an more paperwork and waiting to be done, but chin up good things come to those who wait!
