Green Card Blues No More, Navy-bound With Oar
|Thanks to usvisaforum for this picture.|
About a week after we did the Biometrics part we received our EAD, or Employment Authorization card and it was approximately the same amount of time after our AOS interview that our green card arrived.
I have continued in the long process of enlisting in the US Navy since we were temporarily delayed due to our not having a green card yet... We are almost there--so close we can taste it yet we have not heard a definitive 'yes' nor have we heard a ship date for boot camp. It's all been a waiting game since we arrived in the USA on that fateful September day. Life is very often about waiting and we have come to tell you that is very true for us...

When your wife's mother disallows your union and promises to make it end, provoking your anger daily, forever proclaiming her dissatisfaction with my race, my personality, and my profession, you cannot help but hope for a speedy end! I'm here to tell you that quick might be good when you're in line at the grocery but it doesn't do you a bit of good when it comes to building your character.
The photo above has absolutely nothing to do with the way I got Olivia to America... She came because she loves me. Period. ^-^
