Venting and the emotional roller coaster

Recommended Posts

It's been a long road to get this point. September 4th is our interview. After two RFE's and over a year since filing.... I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Visa journey more then made up for our worthless lawyer. I am so thankful for this site, or we would have had more RFE's and wasted time. I have been, for the most part, alone except for the encouraging messages I find here. I am so happy to see approvals and know things are moving ahead. I just miss my husband and really am excited to finally start a life together where we both are living in the same house.The knowledge that we will have our day to post an approval and impending issuance of visa keeps me positive everyday. This process is an added stress to a marriage and cause me so many headaches, but knowing I have definite day not just maybe in 60 days, maybe in 30 days, maybe in a year.... but an actual day that we can have an answer has made me so happy. Preparing for the interview has redundant, but a necessity. There are so many times I felt like this process was in control of my life and it felt like it was never ending. The biggest positive I can take from this whole experience so far, is this process has made me see more qualities my husband possess that I didnt see before. In turn made our marriage even stronger. To everyone having a hard time or a low point just know to focus on the positive and celebrate each step forward. Best wishes to all in their visa journey.

Great post! I'm loving your optimism and thankfulness. :) I completely agree. Rather than the process making my wife and I weaker, it has made us so much stronger and for that I am grateful. Very well said. :thumbs:
