...we're now permanent American residents!

We had our green card interview this morning, and despite some frustrating hiccups that took a few hours to solve, we've finally been approved as permanent residents of the USA.

This was endless YEARS in the making, with all kinds of obstacles and setbacks along the way. I often wondered if we'd ever achieve this goal. But now it's finally done!

I wonder if there's a record for shortest distance traveled to immigrate. We went through all this just for the privilege of moving about 40 minutes south of our current home :lol:

I give my special empathy having last year endured the Chinese work visa gauntlet.

Dude... we've been paying US taxes for years :p just think how much a doctor's salary has contributed towards the US government income for the last 9.5 years. Only now, our social security contributions actually count for something :lol:

They do live in Canada, but very close to the American border.
Tiffpix works in the USA and has to endure a 1 hour+ commute daily, crossing the border morning and night.
Now they are entitled to actually live permanently in the USA.

On that note, I offer my hearty congratulations! :tu:
I know you have both struggled to achieve this goal.
