Post Decision Activity

On May 16, 2013, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E). Please follow any instructions on the notice. If you move before you receive the notice, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283

I can't believe this will ever come to life. My fiancé arrived from US like 4 hours before he received the email, while waiting for the hospital bill for giving birth to our lovely princess. I'm so glad we're together when we recieved this good news.

That has been the best day ever, going home with the loves if my life and the noa2! :)
