To all members waiting for approval, don't give up hope. I know it's hard watching other members get NOA2 and visa approvals, while you wait patiently halfway around the world from your fiance with no apparent progress on your own application. Just remember why you started this whole process in the first place: love. Realize how lucky you are to have found your soul mate, someone to love and live the rest of your life with. Don't get discouraged. Enjoy every text, phone call, instant message and video chat, with the knowledge that you WILL be together with your loved one someday.

My own foreign fiance made this video of some of our most memorable moments together. Watching this will definitely help me get through some of the days when I am really missing him. Hope you enjoy it.

Wishing you all the best. I know the waiting is miserable, but it will end. Your video was a lovely tribute! (F)


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

Hi Ralph and Patrick, it's great to see another same sex couple going through the process. My Filipino fiance and I have waited since 2008 for this opportunity and we are now at the medical and interview stages. After so long and now so close it is a wonderful feeling. Soon you will be at theses same steps and then sharing your lives together as a married couple. Thanks for the video also. We realized during our visa process we had few pictures together because either I was taking his or him mine. Then came the computer crash and unrecoverable data/photos. Wish there were readily accessible cloud drives then hehe. Fortunately we had plenty of other proof. All the best in your next steps to happiness.

Mario & Patrick
