so it has been more than 8 months since we sent our i-129f package. hopelessness, sadness, impatience, all those stuff made us think we should withdraw the petition by the end of this month. thought about other ways to be together. changing visa type, living in another country, putting myself in his luggage, swimming across the ocean, etc. i tried to avoid vj so i won't see people getting approved. it's not that i'm not happy for them, it just sucks when you're still waiting while others who have filed months after you are getting their approval (you know what im saying? :P)

so last night i went to bed thinking, oh well i guess i need to start moving on and stuff because it's not gonna happen. but this morning when i woke up, my fiance got the magical text. we're approved! i'm not sure if it's because he had an expedite request (he called before i went to bed). they said we should call them in 5 days but we got approved today.

so yeah, patience is a virtue :P

(i would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to my vj friends especially to those who would visit my profile on a daily basis to check if we got our approval)

ps: OMG WE'RE APPROVED!!! (still hard to believe :P)

EVERYTHING IS WITH THE HELP OF GOD. HE NEVER LET US DOWN. HAVE FAITH IN YOUR GOD!!!! I LOVE YOU BABY FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!


“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” - Corinthians
