My father, who I admire and appreciate beyond words, is the
person that this success story is about. I'm writing on his
behalf because I feel that he needs to remember what he did
(he's at the bad place in his life right now) and to support
him in bringing that faith back. Also I would like for
everyone to benefit from it.
Approximately 8 years ago (towards the end of 1999) my dad
was expressing strong desire to move to America. We lived in
Serbia (Eastern Europe) and political and economic situation
was getting worse. There was no sign that it will get any
better in the near future. My dad was extremely worried
about our future. He decided that something needed to be
done so he tried everything he could in order for us to move
(seeking help from friends and family that already lived in
America, applying for visa, entering the embassy
lottery...). I don't remember him talking to us about it in
great detail. He did all that but was quiet and at one point
it seemed like he forgot about the idea all together. We
were going about our lives like usual.
What we didn't know (not even my mom) is that he wrote on a
piece of paper "My family and I will be in America by
September 1st of 2000 legally and with no
complications"(sometime in January of 2000). He would carry
it with him in his wallet and he would re-read it every once
in a while. Most importantly he was so sure in his mind that
it is possible; he accepted it as a fact. He says that he
didn't share it with any of us because he knew we would try
to convince him otherwise or try to point out that he needs
to be real and not set his hopes so high.
Anyone who came to America knows how hard it can be,
especially to stay, live and work legally. His idea was born
from a need but he didn't feel like someone who begs for
anything. He knew what he wanted and he took action. Most
importantly he was open to receive and he proved that by
never doubting (not once since he wrote those words on the
piece of paper) that he will succeed.
Sometime in May of that same year he received a letter
saying that we are selected as winners (whole family) in
embassy lottery and that we will receive the exact date when
we can move to America, if we pass all other requirements.
It took more action on our part but that was very good news
so it was exciting. Very next month we received the other
letter saying that we're getting green cards and will be
legal from August 31st of 2000. We landed in America on that
same day at 7:30pm or so which was by the way 2:30am
September 1st of 2000 in Serbia.
Strong desire and belief that my father had changed our
lives from the root. The way it all happened left me
speechless. Chances of his desire becoming reality were
almost next to impossible but he did it. I'm very grateful
for having such an extraordinary person in my life. I hope he
realizes that this was not some crazy coincidence (he forgot
along the way that it was anything but coincidence) and that
he will use it create more of his desires. I hope all of
you, including myself, will realize that there is no dream
big enough to stop you from attaining it.
All the best and believe in that divine part of yourselves
that we all have, - Visnja
