All it was was the IMBRA RFE? Crazy but at least you got it in hand now.

Don't forget to follow William33's RFE advice, write RFE and the number in red on the outside of the return envelope.

Best wishes your process speeds up from here on out.

If a person just surfing the net would stumble across this vj website and just happen to look at all my posts and see that I have been through all this sh*t for a over 197 days now just to receive an RFE......for the main purpose to be married to a girl from another country - 6000 miles away.....where this curious web surfer would think to himself that more challanges and troubles are sure to be on the horizon....like the approval "mountain" to cross, the NVC log jam "mountain" to navigate through, the scaling of the "mountain" of the sending of packet 3 to arrive safely in Russia, the "mountain" of the interview in Moscow, the "mountain" of the visa arriving to her house safely, the "mountain" of the long lines at the Moscow airport in the security section and then the "mountain" of the long 24 hour flight to JFK airport and then yet another "mountain" of the long line at the immigration counter in JFK - then the "mountain" of finding her luggage just so that she can navigate her way to me waiting for her..........I am so much out of breath just looking at all these mountains to cross.......I did not know we were going to need a "Mt. Everest climbers" permit to simply fall in love and get married so that we could live happily ever after...........

If this innocent web surfer saw this journey that still awaited us......I wonder if he would call me and my girl idiots or crazy for taking such a journey!!!!!!!

Well, then I guess I'm just an idiot and crazy for love and that I better but on another layer of clothing because I'm gonna climb those mountains and one day, one day we can feel the warmth of our souls embracing near the fireplace of our new home.

Men are such stubborn creations I guess - to do all this for love!!!!!!! I don't remember Adam having to scale any mountains for Eve!!!!! Heck........how would that fig leaf keep him warm?????

Sorry for being so long winded........I guess I am in "complaining limbo" with the CSC - that I'm ready to mail back my RFE......and now back to patiently waiting again.

Thanks for your reply - Mike

I cannot imagine how it has been for the two of you. I am looking at seeing my love in a couple of weeks while you are still waiting to just get the petition out of California.

Thank you for your considerate words. If I were to type some words, it might sum up the picture of how we have handled these 198 days.

How 'bout Mack truck sitting on my chest when she writes to me that she cries some nights after a bad dream and rolls over searching for my comfort and embrace just to find an empty bed!!!!!

How 'bout razor blade slowly slicing thru the core of my heart when she constantly asks me why there is no approval letter from the great American Government!!!!!!

How 'bout 2 x 4 slapping me full force in the face when my kids ask me constantly - "when's she coming Dad - when?"

Our letters have now exceeded 800. It is only through the grace of God that we find the strength and determination to continue to write each other every single day. We thank God for the internet!!!!!! I could not imagine waiting 6 weeks for a single letter to arrive!!!!!!!!

Have I ever wanted to quit......and selfishly abandon the woman I promised to cherish and love for the rest of her life? Never......!!!!! What kind of a fool do I look like?? I tell her she's the most beautiful woman in all of Russia!!!! And I mean every letter of that statement - I'll wait for her as long as it takes.

If there is one good thing that comes out of this agonizing wait......I now know how much I love her. I now know how much she loves me. "Love is patient" - yah......I totally understand that statement now!!!! Our day will come.

I wish you and yours good luck in Moscow.

Mike
