it will happen when it has to. dont loose hope. there are those who got their visas in 4 months and then there are thos like me who have been waiting for a year plus. I dont bother much now. I have accepted, i am doing what i should and i will make it when i have to.. whats the rush anyways? enjoy your family's company, once u r gone, u will miss them. a coupleof months or even 6 wont make a difference. they are making it difficult to apply for the visa but not impossible. difficult can be tackled unlike impossible..
