RE: I-129F Fiancée Visa Application petition for Maria Lorena F. Villahermosa

Dear INS Officer;

I am writing in regards of obtaining a Fiancée Visa I-129F for my fiancée Lorena. The following pages included the necessary paper work needed to hopefully provided answers to any questions you might have. If further documentation is needed, or if questions still arise, please feel free in contacting me during the day at 314-344-5251 and/or evening at 314-367-7417. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon. Also, please find my check for $95.00 to cover the filling fee.

At the beginning of the 1999 year, I decided to join a few dating services on the Internet. My goal was to find a meaningful and long lasting relationship. At the end of March 1999, I was contacted by the girl of my dreams. After receiving 100+ letters from all over the world, I found her. I don’t know exactly what happened, but I knew from the start that Maria Lorena F. Villahermosa was the one and only one for me. After writing over 100+ letters to her, 10 phone calls, and un-countable thoughts, I went to meet Lorena in Cebu, Philippines. I left Saint Louis on October 27, 1999 and arrived in Cebu on October 29, 1999.

The trip was very long but well worth every second. When I departed the plain, I was welcomed by Lorena and her family and most of her relatives. A truly inspirational family that became very good friends by the end of my trip. On November 2, 1999, Lorena and I visited a restaurant called Mr. A’s in the foothills over Cebu. I asked Lorena to marry me and she said "Yes". The day after I asked Lorena to marry me, we had a huge party to celebrate our new found life together. During the party, I also asked Lorena’s parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage. They were very happy to have me as a part of their family and blessed us on our life together. I am also very proud that I was accepted into their family circle. My friends and family have also been very supportive and excited for us both. I feel very blessed and eager to start on my new direction in life. I don’t think I have ever been happier in my life. After a wonderful trip and even a better time, I returned on November 6, 1999 and landing is Saint Louis on November 7, 1999. I wish I would have never have had to leave. The people in Cebu were so wonderful and kind during my stay. I miss them all, especially Lorena.

Lorena is absolutely astonishing. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and works for a Senator John H. Osmeña at the Cebu Polytechnic Institute. She also has started and operated a convenience store which she will leave to her family. Her family could easily be considered poorer then most here. But today, with Lorena and her family’s efforts, they have excelled in their dealings and have a beautiful home and store to show for their efforts.

I work for a company headquarters here in St. Louis called Unigraphics Solutions as a software testing engineer on computer aided design software. I have obtained my degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Missouri. I am also involved on the Board of Managers at the Lindell Terrace and I donate my time to the City of St. Louis Office of the Disabled and was proudly appointed by the Honorable Mayor Clarence Harmon. I am confined to a wheelchair due to a 1986 car accident which left me paralyzed quadriplegic. This has not slowed me down in living my life to the fullest. Lorena however, would be by far my most treasured aspiration. I love her dearly.  

Today, we have over 125 letters of correspondence. Isn’t e-mail great! I know that Lorena and I will have a long life together and we can’t wait to get started in our dreams to have a family. We are true soul mates that God has brought together even though we live on opposite sides of his world. Therefore we hope to have a speedy immigration process.

Please contact me at your convenience should you need further clarification or information. Thank you again for your time and assistance.**
