Met online in September of 2009. Spoke initially on the phone and after about 2 months, we became much closer and began Skype video calls weekly then in October, 2010 I met Lena in Kharkov and spent 9 glorious days with her. I proposed, gave her a ring and she reciprocated by presenting me with a gold band and one for her. She had her son's older, slow IBM and I took her shopping for a netbook so that we could increase our Skyping when I returned to Detroit. I missed her too much upon my return and visited her again for New Year and Christmas 2011. In the meantime I filed our I-129F on December 3, 2010. Kiev US Embassy interview: June 17, 2011. We pray all goes well.Interview was 17 June. Visa approved!!!!! Lena will POE in Detroit on 11 July.
