DV 2015 AOS Only

Hello everyone! Congrats to all who already received their GCs and as there is still a few days left good luck to anyone who is still waiting! I used my GC to travel for the first time a couple of weeks back, felt great to skip the long lines lol kidding, it really did feel awesome to not have to worry about visas any longer. So wanted to thank all here again who helped me especially @Sm1smom and @Britsimon - you guys are the best.
When traveling abroad as a GC holder, I only need to have my passport and the green card, right? Nothing else?
 
I had my interview on September 23th! My interview went pretty good and the officer was very nice to me. When he was about to approved me, the system wouldn't let him and the screen displayed something like "this case has not been requested at your field office". So he called KCC right away and they said that since I applied for follow to join my case was sent in my home country's embassy... The officer told them that he needed them to take care of it so he can approve me. They told him to give them until 7:30am the following day. So I went home a bit disappointed. The next day at 7:45am I received a call from the officer telling me it was all good and that I am approved!. He told me to come over because he needed to give me some documents I forgot there and my approval notice too. When I went there he gave me back my originals and my approval notice. Then he emailed my home country embassy to let them know I've been approved and that they should interview my wife as soon as possible so she can get her visa before the FY end. The embassy already have her package so I hope they'll call her on Monday and interview her too.
 
"On September 24, 2015, we registered your permanent resident status and mailed you a Welcome Notice .Your new permanent resident card should arrive by November 23, 2015, after this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later." this is what I'm seeing when I check my status. What is ADIT??? What should I do?

That's cool. Congratulations. Hope your wife is able to scale through also.

You're not required to do anything. Never mind the "ADIT" information, nothing you need to worry about. Expect your GC in the mail.
 
Thanks to everyone on this forum, especially on this thread, especially to the Super Moderators!
The interview on Monday (9/21) passed successfully without any problems. Questions were asked:
- Yes/No questions from I-485
- Where the husband is working (H-1B, programmer).
The officer took a letter from the employer (employment date, position, salary, permanent).
None of originals were asked.
The officer reserved and printed the visas numbers then approved all our cases, stamped our I-485, sang happy birthday and welcomed to USA.
I started receiving notifications about status change in 2 hours.
I have an account in MyUSPS - recommend to everyone register there. I got e-mail notifications from USPS about something coming from USCIS to my address with $100 insurance.
Today I received both Welcome Letters and Green Cards!

@Sm1smom Mom are all your "kids" accounted for for this fiscal year or are we not there yet?
Lol re 'my kids'. :D:D:D

I think my 2015 kids are all accounted for. There are however some step-kids :p (none forum members or posters(?) listed on the Timelines spreadsheet that I'm not quite sure of - they haven't bothered to return and update their information.
