OUR VISA APPLICATION FINALLY GOT APPROVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! biggrin.png

"On April 29, 2013, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E)."

(After 6 months, 3 weeks and 3 days!)

Every morning I used to check our case status and this morning I found out it got approved.

I'm so happy that I'm crying tears of joy and my hands are shaking while typing this.

Good luck to everyone still waiting for their NOA2, my thoughts will be with you.
