Approved too!

We were approved yesterday! :dance: It's almost surreal. I keep checking the USCIS site expecting a DB error or something.

I feel bad for everyone waiting :crying: because we were a July 14 NOA1.

If there is any silver lining, it's becoming apparent that CSC is just posting today-6 months as the 'now processing' date, but just from looking the last couple weeks on the boards, there seems to be a good increase in the number of approvals, so I'll keep my fingers crossed for everyone who has waited so long!

Lemur

A very big congratulations and an ever bigger God bless and a huge wish for the rest of your journey to go by quick ! (F)


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
