I got a good surprise today. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security granted me an "Authorization for Parole". I call this a surprise because it has only been less than two months that I applied for this, and it is now on my hand. Let the name of God be praised! I would also like to say, "Good work, U.S. DHS".
This AP will enable me to depart the US temporarily with the intention to return to the US to resume processing of the Adjustment of Status application, but there will be rules and restrictions to observe regarding this matter.
We filed for this (AP) for emergency purpose, but I don't want this. Nobody wants an emergency travel. But since we don't know what lies ahead, better be prepared than be sorry. I am looking forward for my AOS papers very soon than I expected. And that I will use to travel back to the Philippines to visit my family and friends. I lay it down on God's mighty hand.
