Today, my wife received her green card in the mail!

I'd like to share our "journey" and maybe it might help those who were in a similar situation. I'll make this brief.

We met online March 2011 through a common friend. Through Facebook, Skype, Viber, Yahoo! email, and phone calls we fell in love. She visited me from Ireland July for a 10 day vacation. No awkward feelings at all between us. Just felt natural to be together. She went back to Ireland. I followed her there September of 2011 for a 10 day vacation too. I proposed to her. She accepted (whew!. After reading and researching and reading some more we decided to do the fiancee visa route. Our plan was for her to spend her vacation with me here and then file for the Visa. Unfortunately she was given only 30 days. We decided to get married in the states because 30 days was too short! We hired a lawyer. got married December 6. filed for AOS December 30. Interview was done march 24. received card today!

For those who are feeling nervous or anxious about the whole process, don't be. I was. But my wife was very calm and cool and actually was the one who helped me calm down. Interview was pretty painless.
