Hi guys! So I have been posting on here and asking questions since October, and am happy to announce that at LONG LAST I have submitted the I-129F for my partner and I! (I now have a full-time, permanent position I start next week after working a seasonal job over the holidays after returning from abroad for over a year and a half, so feel the time has finally come and I'll be good for approval). Ahhhh! I am so excited but at the same time obviously terrified hoping everything goes smoothly. I must admit I may be slightly neurotic about it all....

I waited in line at the post office for about 20 minutes. I double, triple, quadruble checked everything for signatures, dates, and used the handy dandy Assembly Instructions on here to make sure everything was in there. It's funny, even after all that checking, I'm still so nervous that somehow something won't be right, I'll be missing something, some sort of error, etc. My mom was teasing me that I could check over everything for a year and still be worried something was missing and that I better get a going! So I sent it certified to TX Lockbox and now the waiting game begins.

Excited to have actually sent it after all this time preparing and researching and just wanted to share. :dancing:

Thank you thank you everyone! Yes, good company here for sure. I know it is a long process and am grateful for the community and support.

And yes... NOA2 will be the good part. It is just I have been waiting to do this for months now KNOWING the process is so long, which was killing me because I hadn't even started! (Took me awhile to get settled after moving back to U.S. and finding a good job) and so even just this part is really exciting, because now its finally real. :)

Now... let's hope I don't get too annoying during the wait time... HA!
