    Hey All, I have been approved!!! Found the NOA2 approval letter in the mailbox today It was approved on December 11th. Online status did not update still shows received, oddly enough it did not show up in my informed delivery email notifications also. @Trinab80 Check your mailbox if you haven't yet. @Naes You were right it would just show up one day without updates.

    I love Seinfeld, and Newman and George were my favorites. With that said, this gif from last night was for a good reason, I'm surprised you guys didn't catch on.... Yesterday I had a biggest day of my life. My cute little Mrs. Squirrel has been APPROVED! I came home late, seen the letter, and posted that gif. I was just overwhelmed to write anything, feeling of relief like no other. With that said, LOOK OUT FOR YOUR MAILMAN !!! No email, no app update, no scan update .... nothing .... just good ol' Newman the mailman. Date on the letter is June 4th Monday. Can't write much now, will fill you in on details tonight when I get home. I truly appreciate you guys, love you all and will be here until we are all gone. Thanks for accepting me as an equal! May God bless America !

    Just got off the phone with Tier II. They say 2 days ago they sent out a request for initial evidence. I'm not sure what that is but it is some real information for a change.

    Surprise home visit / AOS

    At 8am this morning, while sound asleep, incessant loud banging on the door as if the house was on fire woke me up. Sleepily I stumbled to the door in my night gown and in front of me were a man and a lady announcing they were from immigration. Knowing all about home visits I responded as calm as a cucumber : "Sure come on in have a seat, I need to put some clothes on." Nothing rattles me anymore on this journey. I said to my husband honey get up, immigration is here. He quickly threw some clothes on and came into the living room where the man started asking questions. Meanwhile our 4 dogs were barking like they were out of their minds drowning out the questions we no longer could hear and I said excuse me and like the true alpha told them to shuuuut uuuup. Silence at last. Proceed. It was truly like a scene out of Chevy Chase National Lampoon movie, Endless Bummer, Animal House, Barely Legal, Threshhold of Hell, pick any title. (They should make one about immigration it would be a hoot). Questions asked were about travel together, our work schedules, how long I owned my business, etc. He took pictures of several things in the house, my African culture decor, photos in frames of us together, of my husband's mom, of him as a baby, a photo I had sitting in my bedroom of my naturalization ceremony from almost 20 years ago tucked into a forgotten corner of the dresser, (I immigrated here over 40 years ago). He recognized that it was from a naturalization ceremony with eagle eyes, must have been doing this job for a while. I was impressed. Yes, we were all in the bedroom by now, they wanted a tour of the house...meaning checking closets, seeing if we really lived together, slept in the same unmade bed and so on. Now I always pictured the perfect home visit with a clean sparkling house, having coffee with the investigators and exchanging niceties. No, it was just like they prefer it, a total surprise. The house was a mess and so was I with a big shiner on my forehead because I ran into a sharp fence post bracket the day before. I did point to the beautiful bouquet of flowers he bought me a few days ago though. In the kitchen they took pics I had on the fridge with magnets of my family and they took pics of joint bills, joint bank account and CC's we had laying around on the table. I asked if they would like to see our AOS "evidence box". They said no. They seemed to be only interested in what their eyes randomly caught and peeked their interest. Fun aside, they were very nice and the whole experience lasted 20 minutes. I was glad they came so now we can move forward from being stuck in the abyss. We filed AOS in May 2015, had each a one hour stokes interview Sept. 2016 and now 8 months later after numerous service requests, EAD/AP renewal twice, senator contacts, Ombudsman contact it came to this visit. He said you will have no problems, everything checked out fine and you are obviously legit as a couple as we see you here like this. He said they came all the way from Texas because my filed office is so backlogged. He said he didn't know why all the scrutiny when I asked what's up with the checks. Again I want to mention the whole thing was like a friendly chit chat, relaxed, respectful. Don't let that fool you though, they get exactly what they want to know by friendly chit chat. The worst was the loud banging on the door which freaked me out but I wouldn't have heard just a normal knock because we were sleeping and they would have probably left, leaving us marinade even longer in the AOS background check sauce of despair. So why the constant hurdles for us you may wonder. I don't know. It took us 5 years to come together, first K1 refused after 16 months in AP, second one approved. I had petitioned someone else in 2005 which was also refused after long AP and he did not make it here because I stopped it due to his fraudulent motive I discovered in my own investigations. The louse was a liar. Interestingly, lots of questions were asked during the AOS interview about that. Other flags may be that we had several trips to Turkey, a somewhat flagish country to visit these days and Cyprus being close to Syria, him having a Muslim name (he has been an active Christian all his life) and being originally from a high fraud West African country. I will update when he receives the green card. We have been a couple since 2009. Almost 3 years married. Long story short, no sweat if you have a real relationship and abide by the requirements then eventually you will be approved. If at first you don't succeed, try again, is my motto. Never give up, keep your cool and be patient. Be yourself, try not to open the door in a night gown though and throw the robe on before you open the door. If we can't mention the funny parts of this and laugh at ourselves then we are taking ourselves way too serious. So relax and chill and I wish you all speedy approvals for visas and AOS, ROC and naturalization. There is always a silver lining for a long drawn out AOS, we qualify for a 10 year green card now because we are married over 2 years and don't have to ROC. Yay !

    A wee update: we got married last night! A simple ceremony downtown and dinner afterward - in the middle of a snowstorm, my fiancé's first (he's a fan already!) We'll go file the license tomorrow, pick up our marriage certificate, and then hopefully get the AOS documents sent off tomorrow or Thursday.

    I JUST CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!!!! THE DAY HAS COME!!!!!!! MY APPROVAL. Up until now it has been the crappiest day ever. I finally had the chance to look down at my cell phone and see a message from USCIS. "Check the USCIS tracker for case update" And there it was. That just turned one of my worst days around into one of my best days. I am still waiting for and praying for @AZSunshine78 and all of the rest of the late May crew and June bugs to get across this hurdle.

    Just want to say congrats to those that received their NOA2 this week and case #s from NVC. As we head into Christmas, I wanna which everyone and Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays if you celebrate something else), and I hope you all are safe and have a joyous time!!! For those that are still waiting with me for a NOA2 or anything at this point....I will keep you all in prayer and hopefully before the day is over Santa and his reindeer will drop something in our mailboxes today or tomorrow. Either way, chin up and smile because believe it or not we are closer today than we were yesterday and the days before. And I just want to thank you all that have said so many encouraging words of kindness and sent much love and positivity towards my Reni and I. Believe it or not, WE ARE ALL FAMILY!!! Blood and DNA has nothing to do with what makes a family and I have a love and respect for each and everyone of you!!! I wouldn't have made this far without you pulling me through this. Thanks for the laughs, thanks for letting me vent, and thanks for your strength!!!! Merry Christmas!!!
