After 10 month of waiting from NOA1, case was finally approved yesterday. Thank you GOD, we are so excited and I just came back from spending Christmas with my husband. This is best gift ever. Thank you to all my VJ family - you guys are awesome. Now we wait for NVC- I wonder what I can do while waiting for them to send the IV bill and DS3032 and everything else? Any suggestions guys?

PLEASE BE PATIENT - all those waiting for NOA2 from Vermont, it will come very soon.
