Here it is!!! This is the little stinker that took months on end, and its finally in my hand!!! It won't be in my hand long though, because tomorrow morning it'll be sent off to Chicago! The immigration office in Chicago will take about four days to issue my visa, and then mail it back to me. After it comes in the mail, I will (FINALLY) be able to purchase my ticket. I'm still planning on leaving November 29th, which is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Keep your fingers crossed and prayers said that this government office will process things more smoothly than the last one! I'll let you know when I have more information. Thanks for the prayers!
