I met my husband through letters

by Carol, monroe twp., NJ

I am Filipino and I met my American husband through mail and phone calls when I was a maid and nanny in Hong Kong. After 5 years of writing to each other we finally decided to meet in person in person. Since I have a brother in Chicago, Illinois, I asked him to help my pen pal to meet me in Philippines. So my pen pal went to the Philippines with my brother. The day we met in person, we liked each other very much and we decided to get married. After five days we got married and two days later he went back to the United States and started processing my visa so we can be together in America as a husband and wife. A year later I came here in America and after three years we were blessed with a beautiful son which I name him Derek. My husband and I love each other very much even we only met through pen pals. Unfortunately, last January 18, 2007 I had a miscarriage at my three months pregnancy. It’s God’s will so my husband and I will try again until we blessed another child so my son will have a brother or a sister. This coming March 07, 2007 my husband and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.
