HEY ALL...to anyone who remembers us. AGGGHHHHHHHHH...we have finally been approved. It's been the longest hardest journey Gary and I have ever been through but it is over now. Gary will be getting his passport and visa verry soon and then he CAN COME HOME! GOD BLESS the USCIS in London and thankyou for being so very kind to us. I hope everyone comes out of this immigration journey in one piece, I know how hard it all is but hang in there for all those still waiting. PEACE AND LOVE ALWAYS!!!!

That is great news! Congratulations to you both!


Allah[swt] says: “You may have someone in your mind, someone in your heart, someone in your dreams, someone in your life, but I am your someone when you have no one"He[swt] reminds us saying "O Prophet! Allah is sufficient for you and for the believers who follow you." [[Qur'an:8:4]] So when you slip and fall, remind yourself of Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim, the One whose always there, just waiting for your Call!
