This is my first time posting on this thread, although I have been following and reading through the posts for the past couple of months.
My PD is May 18 and I was getting worried after I heard nothing from USCIS and the time that VJ estimated for my approval had also passed. So I contacted my congressman's office on December 1st.
Lo and behold I got an email from the staffer today that my petition was approved on Dec 8th! On to NVC now.
Thank you to all who have posted who have gotten me through these many long months of waiting. For those who are still waiting, best of luck! I'm sure you'll hear from them soon.
