Yes!!!

Sorry to hear about your furlough.   Will you and T still consider starting a business?  Her plate will be full just adjusting to her new life, yet if she wants to be a business owner.....

My stepdaughter married a local man a couple of years after arriving.  He had just started a business, and she joined him immediately as an equal partner.   They did $5 million in revenue last year with an excellent profit margin.  The pandemic has hurt with business down 30% and profits more. 

Operating a business and being a spouse in a new marriage is a huge challenge.  She loves it even though it consumes all of her time.

....Either we were very lucky, or the current lockdown caused the agencies to focus on processing paperwork electronically, or both.  Anyway, we getting closer to T arriving here permanently.  Fingers crossed, again.

Thatís awesome news, Steve! Very happy for both you!! Now two dreams will soon be fulfilled. Getting her here and starting a business.

Congratulations and Good luck to both!!!

Thank you everyone.

T was here last year on a fiance visa.  She's mostly acclimated here and liked my small town (40 minutes west of Boston).  Even in winter.  Due to issues she had to return to Ukraine and we couldn't do an adjustment of status.

The business idea is from T.  She owned a few small grocery stores in Ukraine, in Donetsk.  The war and current conflict there caused her to loose all but one of the stores, which was the largest.  About a 1/4 of the size of a US chain grocery store like Stop N Shop or Publix.   She transferred that store to her parents when she moved out of Donetsk, but managed it remotely until last year when we did the fiance visa thing. 

She is doing some research now and then while we wait for the spouse visa.

She's smart for doing her homework. She's also brave for wanting to open a store in a country she's not familiar with but it seems based off her past experience, she's worked hard to achieve much. Too bad instability in Ukraine has led her to lose most of her assets. She'll be a wonderful asset for you and America.
