I need all of your prayers on this trip. I am praying that the remaining RFE papers that are needed are in good order when I get to Athens. I am bringing the original RFE notices so I can mail everything via courier from Athens. Hopefully there will be some touches on our case by the time I get back to New York.

Please, please, pllllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssseeeeeeeeeeee pray that we get approved. We have been in K-1 HELL since end of March.

I WANT OUT of this limbo!!!

I have so many documents to bring with me, even everything he needs after the NOA2 so he will just have to do his part once he gets the Packet 3 from the embassy.

Wishing everyone here well and many more approvals for everyone while I am away for 2 weeks.


Andreas & Bridgett

I hope you have lots of fun in Athens, try to relax and forget about all the paperwork while you are there. I remember your post a couple months ago, when you didn't receive Andreas divorce papers in the mail and you were approaching the deadline for your RFE. I am so happy that all of that was taken care of. Hopefully, by the time you come back, you have various touches and an approval also, wouldn't that be great? Have lots of fun, you deserve it! :yes:
