Glory be to GOD in the highest hallelujah!!!! Hubby had interview today and was...APPROVED after 19months!! Thank you to all the VJers! Special thanks to Dwheels, saylin and others for all the help to get through this. For everyone else that is waiting, there is a light at the end of this long tunnel and your day is coming. Have faith and you will get there. GOD bless!!

Here is what happened: hubby got there around 6am , went through the line ended up being interviewed by one of the nicest officers, asked him how we met, what my profession was, if we had kids, how long had i been in the US, looked at some pictures; then he started to type something in the computer and so hubby asked what he should tell his wife, then the officer said, "tell her your visa was approved"! We were so nervous because we didn't do any front/back loading. We didn't get any checklist, it just took forever to get my tax transcripts. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
