A question for Veronika:
In one of your e-mails you wrote about some of the things you encountered when first arriving from Ukraine to the United States. I find your first hand insight very helpful, and would like to be as prepared for my fiancée's arrival as possible. What suggestions do you have that may be helpful in making my future wife's transition to America as smooth and comfortable as possible? Thank you for your feedback, and I think I speak for many on this forum: Please keep writing.

I don't know if your fiancée speaks English but even if she does, she needs to familiarize herslef with everyday vocabulary. Also, almost all Ukrainian women can cook so, I am sure she would like to make something special for you. Help her to shop and show her different products( I screwed up with rising flour first time I cooked. There is no rising flour in Ukraine. Just all purpose). Also, she is used to metric system of measuring. Give her something that would help her in transition to American pounds, pints, miles and Fahrenheit temperature.

Also, let me give you my e-mail address. She can e-mail me with any questions. She would need to have somebody from familiar world to talk to. Check if there is Ukrainian/Russian community where you live. It will help you both. She will be less depending on you if she will have friends of her own. My e-mail is: veronikabacot1@netzero.com.
Give he little tour of the place where you live. If you have a map, show the place where you live on the map. By the way, if she has international driver's license, she can drive for 3 months with it. She can get your state's DL if she will pass written and driving tests. Get her a book from DMV. Also, make sure there is no discrepancy in name on her SSN card and K 1 visa. Otherwise, they will not give her driver's licensee. Also, just FYI, INS mails green cards within 6-12 months.
But I think the most important thing is to start creating your own memories. And by that I mean, take some time from work. Have your honey moon, show her America. Take her on picnic. Ukrainians love nature. This will help her not to be lonely and home sick. And of course if you have a good calling plan, this would help a lot too. She would like to talk to her family back in Kiev. Let me know if I can help
