Thank you Lord for your never ending love, support and guidance.........

I still remember when our 5 hours chatting started "Sept. 07, 2012". Then the rest is history. Filed our petition on February got my Interview on 8th of August. Now I am going to leave my home country to finally be with my love.

No one ever said WAITING was FUN. ClockWatch2.gif . But once the approved Visa/Passport is already in your hand, all the pain, frustrations, and never ending questions are all forgotten.

Been a long day for me today at CFO, sure a shared story will be posted. Just let me energize first. good.gif

I am really thankful for this forum. I will never stop thanking you. I sure can tell who are the VJ's. They are equipped, ready and confident to face the battle.

..... story to be continued..... zZZzzzzzZZZZZZZ

I was able to purchase a one-way on very short notice (only 2 days) from Expedia.com for $1,002 with EVA Air...all the airlines are good....I have flown with most of them...for me it is just about price and how long the trip will take. With a little more notice...you can get the price down to around $800.

Good luck !!
