Yesterday was an April Fools Day that my client will never forget. After a long and difficult journey, his green card arrived in the mail yesterday. His wife, who had gotten her green card months ago, was elated and he could not believe it. I fought with everything I am for this man and my hard worked paid off! Feeling blessed to be able to make such a difference. This man, his wife's and his children's lives have been changed forever. I know they felt relief and were so happy, as was I. This was an emotional journey for me as well.
