Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to thank you all for your help and support on this site. I just found out that my visa arrived at the pick-up location today, just in time so that I'll be able to leave with my fiance for New Years as planned. We are both so excited. Our interview was Dec 11th, a year to the day that we first decided to pursue the immigration option and we will be married on Jan 3rd, 2 years to the day we first met. :) He'll be driving here to help me get ready and take me back with him this weekend!

I don't think we'd be here if it wasn't for this site. It's been a long and very stressful year for both of us, but we managed the visa process without even an RFE thanks to you all. It's such a relief to know this part is finally over.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday and, for those still waiting, get to be with your love soon!
