Around March 2007 pictures of Svetlana caught my attention on Anastasia. To this day I donít know what attracted me to her. But after a few weeks of looking at her pictures I decided to write her just to see if she would respond, which she did the very next day. This was the beginning of something beautiful as she was everything I was looking for in a woman and much more. For almost a year we wrote and spoke on the phone with the help of Anastasiaís translators. Finally in February 2008 I made the first of many visits to Ukraine. At the airport we were very nervous and didnít know what to expect from each other, but it was as if I had known Svetlana for years. With the help of a simple electronic translator and a dictionary we began to learn more about each other. Before I left I asked her to marry me and she said yes. A couple of months later I returned to Ukraine and we made our official engagement with her family and son. During 2008 I visited for more than 6 months of the year and on November 29, 2008, we were married in a very traditional Ukraine ceremony and I have never had such a wonderful and fun filled 2 days in all my life.
I must say that without the help of everyone at Anastasia website we would not be married today. Since our wedding I have returned to America for my work. We are currently awaiting our final visa documents so Svetlana and our son, Sasha, can join me and my 2 children in America.
