Finally!

Almost a year and a half after we started our visa journey, my AOS was approved. It was a wonderful moment in our lives. In a way it almost feels like an afterthought, seeing as though we've been happily married for almost a year and sometimes, especially since I started my job after my EAD came in, it feels like the hardest parts are over. Still it was no surprise to feel so unbelievable overjoyed to get this news. As my ma' by marriage says: "now you can focus on those grandchildren"!

Once again, I sincerely thank all VJ'ers for their support and selfishness.

I meant "selflessness", of course! I guess I was just too excited! :lol:
