10/23/2020: USPS picked up card

When I mailed my RFE response in July, the case status online never updated to "RFE response received". It showed "RFE sent on 6/25" up until 10/25/2020, when it finally updated to "Card was Picked Up by USPS". I did call in August and September, and one of the immigration officers confirmed that my RFE response was received, but the online status wasn't accurate.

I came to the U.S. in 2006 (yes, 14 years ago), and went through F2, H4, F1, H1B statuses until getting my green card just now. My English is way better than my native language at this point, and it's honestly been a long time coming. I never liked hearing "you just have to wait" from people even when they meant well, because they couldn't imagine how excruciating the wait is. I do hope that all of you will get your green card soon.
