1. Dreams come true
In high school I was reading books about Japan. Dream to visit this amazing country seemed sky-high, on a par with flying to the moon.
But years passed and now, I live in Japan!
I set a goal to marry and move to another country. Unfortunately, in my beloved Ukraine, I have lost hope to change things for the better in my life.
Sacking future husband was long and difficult. The truth was I didn’t want to leave for Japan. I was looking for someone who will be a father to my daughter, and I was a good husband.
There was a large correspondence with men from different countries. Hopes, disappointments, new hopes.
Letters from Japan, from my future husband, were special. It is always interesting to tell about yourself, about your family, send lots of photos. He often called us and cared for us with my daughter. I realized that this man really wants to marry me! But the final decision could be taken only after a personal meeting. And my daughter, at the invitation of the groom, flew to Japan.
Fuji welcomed us very well. Every day he showed us the sights of the Japanese. My daughter noticed that the first time, with delight and flood of impressions we exchanged with her one sentence. “look, Look! Wow. ”
A month later we got married and now I have a new family, new home and new life.
Dreams come true!
