Okay, so i had my interview on Nov 26th.. The CO told me to wait cuz she needs time to look at my papers (it was so thick). Then at the releasing window the dude told me to wait 2-4 weeks because my case is under administrative processing. I was so worried and I literally kept on crying. We waited 3 years for our I-129F petition to be approved by USCIS cuz we were stuck at background checks. I was worried they were gonna deny me or make me wait at least 6 more months (had enough waiting already). After my interview, my ceac status was changed to READY. Then just a few mins ago it changed to ISSUED!!!! OH MY GOD!!! i am passing out! Hahahaha so this means I just have to wait for my passport with my visa in the mail now right? Hahaha omg thank you LORD!!!
