GC arrived July 5th!!

Well that’s it, I am officially done for about 21 months!! My GC and welcome letter arrived last July 5th, and it’s beautiful!!! The card says that I have been a resident since June 17th, so I am USCIS-free until March 17, 2013.. ROC here I come!!! 🙂

Now that AOS is out of the way, I’m off to get my driver’s license and remove restrictions/change name on my SSN. All I brought was my Marriage and Birth Certificate and one valid ID (Military ID), together with my GC, and they changed my name and the new SS card should arrive in a few weeks! Woohoo!!

I am currently en route to GA as I type, with some stops in VA and NC along the way.. I will blog about it soon, probably when we have settled in our room in Ft. Benning. 🙂 Have a good week everybody, and to those still waiting for their GC, HANG IN THERE! I am living proof that it will happen, and it will end! God bless you all! 🙂

    Wow! It’s just today that I’ve seen your blog and I started reading most of your entries. You arrived here in US on Feb 2011 and got your green card by July! I wish it’s going to be fast for me too. I already passed my aos and done with the biometrics so I’m waiting now, hopefully no rfe. 😉 keep on writing, you are inspiring. 😉
