We spent nine days together in Manila. he met my family, my colleagues at work and my friends. He bought an engagement ring and he informed my parents that he wanted to marry me. He also informed them that he wanted to file a petition forfor me because it was fastest way he can bring me to the United States. Spending nine days with him was one of the happiest days in my life. He brought with him all the paperworks for the fiancee visa petition and as soon as he came back to the United States, he started filing the petition. From the time he left Manila and from the time my visa was approved, things didn't change between us. He still continued sending me post cards and love letters. After almost seven months of waiting, I found myself getting on the plane going Sto an Francisco International Airport. Even if the Philippine Airlines Staff gave me a little problem boarding the plane, even if I was calling him from the airport telling him of my little problem with the PAL staff, he was there monitoring the flight and finally, he was there waiting for me at the airport when my flight arrived in San Francisco. Three days after I arrived, we went to see his family in LA. This is my love story.
