Our worst nightmare would be waiting this long only to get a rejection letter. I don't know if i could handle that.
Mrs Mwangi.. hang in there Hun'.. we all have to be patient, but I kind of agree with what you are saying here....

Certain types of visas take 10-15 YEARS to be granted (not an expert on those, but I believe the kind that allow you to bring your parents over if the majority of their kids are in Oz)... so just imagine.... it could be worse! I know, that's no comfort right now.
