Yay NOA2!

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got the email a few minutes ago that our NOA2 was approved! It's my normal bedtime but I doubt I'll be able to sleep tonight :dance: I know there's still much to do and more waiting but I'm just so excited this step is done! Thanks so much to everyone here at VJ for being so helpful. Without your help, I would have been lost :thumbs:

Mega Congratulations!

Even though I signed up to get both, I've only gotten the email (and letter) for NOA1 and NOA2, never a text.
