Hello everyone! Just wanted to say thanks for all of your support, and for the amazing website / forum. Every question I ever had was answered somewhere on this site, and if not, I got help immediately from you all.

My wife and I have our interview at the end of August, and I will be leaving for Peru in less than two weeks! I'm so excited to go down there again and bring her back with me. Here's to hoping that our interview goes well!!!

Thanks to everyone, and good luck!!!
