Congrats Tany. I have tears in my eyes remembering your journey. I am so happy for this ending and a new beggining

My process was easy and I am very thankful and very blessed. but I was still crazy throughout the whole thing! lol

You may be on cloud 9 right now just knowing he has his visa.... the the true floating feeling is when you see him walk through that door onto american soil and into your arms. The feeling of no more computer or emails or texts or visits or 20 hour flight.... knowing he will always be next to you when you need a hug or just to hold your hand... this is an amazing feeling... I will never forget how blessed we were and we are forever grateful to all the people of VJ who helped us make it through cairo embassy.

Enjoy your life, your love and your future.

Praise God!

You have been such a great example throughout this process of how to get things done, and turned around in your favor. And, you've done it with a lot of grace and class - no whining or blaming others. Truly, a great example of how to get it done!

Wishing you guys all the best in his journey here and the adjustment and transition period! :star:

:blush: Thank you! I didn't let immigration run my life, it wasn't easy, but you can't let it run your life. Otherwise, it will destroy you. I can't wait for what's next!

You should write a book and include some of the other woman from mena and their stories this would be a wonderful idea. Gives future mena spouses a guide to go by and I'm sure there are so many spouses that can relate. :yes:

Tany,

Your story definitely educated me regarding the true nature of going through CASA. Because your relationship was true and real, you guys presevered. I do not know you, but this made me very happy. I hope to be in your shoes one day. God bless you both, and ENJOY your life even more together!

You stuck by each other, proved your love for each other, and got the visa in the end. I'm so very happy for you. Much love and happiness to you both (L)(F)

...and we finally have our IR1 in hand. I am going to be a bit over the top, maybe emotional, and I know most people say this when their journey is over, but what I am going to say is absolutely from the bottom of my heart. Firstly, we could not have done this without VJ. It has been an amazing source of information, and is what enabled us to do EVERYTHING by ourselves. Our K1, our marriage in Morocco, our CR1, our NOIR, and finally getting our visa. As much as VJ itself has helped, it was really the people I have encountered from when I joined in May of 2009 until now. I have made some great friends because of this journey, and just absolutely could not have done this without their knowledge of denials out of Casa, and the NOIR. There were a few woman who helped me with my first denial in 2010. Then the ones who stuck by me through the second denial in 2011. So many people have followed our case, and have prayed along with us for a great outcome. I can not begin to thank everyone enough. There are so many people who took the time to leave me comments on my page, and who truly cared about us, and our case. It doesn't seem like much, but that has meant a lot to both of us, and gave me strength and courage knowing I had so many people rooting for us.

My family. Wow, my immediate family, to my extended family...parents, sisters,cousins, aunts, uncles, are all excited for his arrival. They are planning a huge Welcome to America/wedding party for us in August. I could not ask to be more blessed with all the support I have received from here, my family, and my co workers. For everyone who left me comments, or emails, I thank you for caring about us. I wasn't able to comment directly to everyone, but I want you to know, I appreciated your concerns for us. You all know who you are. I will also be more than happy to help anyone who needs it here. I have already helped a few people, and it feels so good to be able to pass on the knowledge that I learned to others going through Casa. I don't know everything, but will pass along anything I know, because I would not wish my journey on anyone.

Lastly, I am going to say I am thankful that God knows best. He wanted us to wait. We did our best every step of the way, but it just wasn't our time. He tested us, and I am so proud to say how much closer we are because of this, and how proud we feel that despite all of the let downs, we didn't let that interfere with the love we have for each other. We kept fighting for our relationship, and in the end, we were able to convince them that we deserve this. I was never truly angry with the consulate, as they were only doing their jobs. I would be frustrated with how they conducted business sometimes, but when you have the daunting job of deciding who is a fraud, and who isn't, I can't imagine it is easy. We knew our relationship was real, it was just a matter of time before they would see that. I believe that is why everything went so, so fast in the end. Scheduling the interview for the next week, telling him to get everything in ASAP, calling the very next morning after dropping off documents the day before to get his visa right after the weekend. It really was a blessing. They even made sure to change his CR1 to the IR1. I could not be more pleased with the way it ended.

My husband will now leave everything that he has ever known, but I am happy to say he is coming into a family that has a lot of love and support waiting for him. My mother is an immigrant herself, and remembers exactly how it felt to leave her country. I have so much faith that our relationship will only continue to grow, and all this waiting will be a distant memory. My son will not know when he is coming, because my husband has his heart set on surprising him. Our life has been on hold for many years, and we finally get to begin our lives together as husband and wife :luv:

Sorry for the long post, I just have a lot gratitude to share (L)
