I got my I-140!!

FY-NA-LLY..after 557 days and nights of unreasonable wait, my I-140 was approved today. Got the damn automated email and was in a little bit of disbelief for a moment. I know I am making it sound like too much of a deal here, but those of you that have waited with me and continue to [...]
