I literally can't believe it...

I had just done a timeline search to update the stats I've been keeping. I thought, "Oh what the heck, I'll check my email to see what VJ responses have been posted." And when the mail had finished downloading, there it was...Not an RFE, an APPROVAL!!!

:star::star::star:

I'm shaking all over, I'm so happy!! :yes:

My baby's gonna be home soon, now...I know it's a lot to hope for, but wouldn't it be amazing if he could be here for Christmas...? I can't think of a better present...Well, I know I'll have to wait and see. In any event, no one will be able to wipe this smile off my face for WEEKS. I feel like I'm floating...

I need to do something really special tonight to mark the occasion...but what?

I already tried to call Laurent, but it's the middle of the night there. You can bet I left him a pretty excited message, though. Oh man, I hope he calls soon!!!

LIFE IS GOOD!!! Hang in there, everyone still waiting...Your day is coming...My prayers are still with you all, and I am NOT giving up the fight to bring attention to the still ongoing problems at USCIS!

January 2004: Met Laurent at the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris

February 2004: We became an actual couple

January 29th, 2006: I left France to return to the United States--AWFUL to say goodbye!

June 2006: Finally convinced Laurent that a K-1 visa would be more time-effective than trying to get an H-1

August 1st, 2006: The K-1 petition is finally in the mail and on its way to Nebraska...WooHoooo!! And yes, I remembered to attach the check! :-)

August 3rd, 2006: USPS online tracking shows that my petition (sent certified) was received at the NSC at 5:05am

August 14th, 2006: NOA1 received USPS!! (I-129F recv'd at CSC: 8/4; NOA date: 8/10; last touched: 8/11)

October 2nd, 2006: I MISTAKENLY thought we had an approval...False alarm...Back to waiting...

October 3rd, 2006: TOUCHED!!

October 4th, 2006: REALLY AND TRULY APPROVED!!! Email notification lists 10/3 as the NOA2 date.

Later that same day: TOUCHED...AGAIN! Hope that means I'm in a cozy box and moving to NVC this week...

October 10th, 2006: Received official NOA2 via snail mail.

October 19th, 2006: Case received at NVC!! AWESOME!!

October 20th, 2006: Case forwarded to Paris!! DHL says two shipments were headed that way. Must be in there somewhere...

October 27th, 2006: Received official receipt letter from NVC via USPS.
