Recieved my "Welcome To America" letter in the mail today.

I was kinda suprised it didn't look as I expected it to look.

I thought it would be on nice Government letter head with a seal and all that. :unsure:

But it looks just like the NOA letter .

Oh well . Least its something! :star:

Congratulations Lily,

I was wondering if they were special or fancy looking? Looks like plain if it like the NOA letters. Still worth framing. :thumbs:

Congrats! :dance:

We never got the welcome letter, I wonder how many people or is it by Service Center, has anybody from California received the welcome letter?
