3 Years Ago....

November 20, 2006........ 3 years ago.......

It was the day I was waiting for, I was ready (I think)! My clothes are hung and pressed by my mother. It was neatly hung at the foot of the bed where I was sleeping. All my papers where in order and I am very familiar with it. I reviewed everything that was in the bunch of folders with side tabs for easy access. I couldn't sleep... and I don't want to sleep. I don't want to miss my appointment. After a little doze here and there I woke up at 3am. I took my shower, change my clothes check my papers again and then I woke up my brother. He accompanied me into the main highway. He hailed a taxi cab for me. I was then on the way to US Embassy for my interview.

I arrived there around 430am. Many people were lining up outside waiting for the embassy officers to call us and to fall in line. My appointment was 7:00 am but I was early because everybody needs to be early.

After waiting outside for like an eternity, we were called those that have 7:00am appointments. I presented my identification and appointment letter and follow all the steps. The process seems a blur to me now... All I remember is passing the DS Forms and the stub representing your number.

I know I went through finger printing, initial interview by the Filipino officer asking all the documents and asking all legal papers. Then the endless waiting of the interview with the Consul.... I have friends that has the same schedule with me but they are all done and I am the only one who was not interviewed yet... I started to get nervous but I was praying that I won't be assigned to a strict consul.

Then, my number flashed I went to the booth where the consul was... smiling (but nervous in the inside) ... I was confident and trying to be brave... I was lucky the consul was very nice and he even complimented me on how I arrange my documents....

I boldly asked if I am approved... and he said Yes... I was happy my Fiancee Visa to USA was approved....

3 Years ago.... A nice consul approved the fiancee visa petition... I waited for my visa to be delivered and then fly here to the USA. It was a decision that I won't regret for I married the man that I love and my bestfriend.
