Just little late to introduce myself

Hi!!! :rolleyes:

I've joined this wonderful community a little late on my journey. Currently my husband and I are going through the process of adjusting my status, I've already got my EAD and SSN.

I did not come to the states under a k1, instead, I've met my husband while I was already here under a student visa, All the information shared on this community has definitely helped us manage this nerve wracking experience. Currently my biggest concern is the interview, I've heard horror stories and unforeseeable pitfalls I would like to avoid, I also like the idea that if sharing my timeline and my experience will give another person hope while they wait then that's a good enough reason to participate instead of "lurk" :thumbs:

Please treat me kindly and I will do my best to do the same.

Good luck to us all and write ya later!!
