As of today, I’m a green card holder! The interview process was NOTHING like the movie with Gerard Depardieu and Andie MacDowell. 15 minutes in and out.

The interviewer did note that green cards hadn’t been green in 50 years (they’re beige or off-white).

We were worried that they would a) want to transfer our case to Colorado since we’re living here and b) ask for our original marriage certificate, which we accidentally packed in our household goods, which are still in storage.

In any event, all turned out well, and it was quite pleasant actually. I don’t actually have the card itself, but rather a stamp in my passport saying it’s coming…
