Default I PASSED!!!!!

I passed!,I passed!,I passed!!......my Citizenship Test,yesterday afternoon,in Chicago....I was in there for ages,because of the VERY different way I was brought into the country.....I had no paperwork,my British passport had expired,we hadn't been to the US Embassy in London to get things sorted out at the time.....it was a real mess!!!,then when I did finally get well,and strong, enough,we went to the San Fransisco offices,to get everything sorted out,and get my Green Card,they messed everything up...and I didn't actually get my Green Card until we went to the offices in Chicago,and I got my card in 1990,more than two years later!....still,the interviewer,yesterday,was SO nice,she listened while I explained what had happened,and she went to talk to her boss and told him what was going on with me,and came back and said that they would make sure everything was sorted out by the time I take my Oath,hopefully by November,but if not it will be in January,at the latest.....and in Peoria!!!!!......Sophia:thumbs up:

Thanks Ray!...I knew there would be a few problems when I did apply for my Citizenship,just because of the way I entered the country in the first place,but it was actually a lot smother than I'd been expecting....Thank Goodness!

Yes, ABY,that light is shining brightly!

Yes,the interviewer had the FBI name check paper on her desk,while she went out of the room to talk to her boss,that's when I noticed it had my name on it,and I could see it was from the FBI and it said I had 'no record',of course,I already knew that!...and so at the end of the interview,I asked if everything was ok,and had I passed,and she said 'YES!',but I won't be a complete Citizen until I have had my Oath Ceremony,and she said she'd do everything she can to get everything sorted out so that I can do that in November,and that all depends on whether the office in San Fransisco can find the paperwork,but either way,my Oath Ceremony will be in January at the very latest!....Sophia
