Welcome to the U.S.

I got them. The notice and then the actual card.

Finally, after more than seven years working on the paperwork and jumping through all the hoops, my green card has come in the mail. It was lengthy and costly but it is all worth it. I have worked in the States for more than twenty years (on and off, always legally papered) but now I can forget about renewing my work visa every other year, forget about being tied up to only one job, forget about being unable to go and visit family because some paperwork is not quite approved. What a relief, what a joy !

Yes, yes, yes and that is just a fabulous thought. Just the idea that I now have the right to relocate anywhere I wish is so freeing.
