Ukrainian Women – How I Met my Wife in Ukraine (Part 2)
here is the second part of Tim’s letter about how he met his beautiful and nice wife in Ukraine (you can read the first part of this wonderful romantic story here: ukrainiandatingblog.com/2011/06/ukrainian-women-met-wife-ukraine-part-1/)
The meetings were at nice cafes and none seemed to be overly expensive. The food in Kharkov is very good and priced right. One of the Dates that Iana and I went on was to a very very nice restaurant with glass walls, a doorman, a real high class place. We had salads, entrees deserts and drinks. It cost 54 bucks!! 🙂 It would have been at least twice that in the US. Most of the time it was about 25 dollars for us to eat a nice meal. I had some down time while waiting for the dates so I read a little watched some dvds and walked around the city.
One time Mr. Mordinson knew that I was waiting on Iana and he came by and took me on a tour of the city. Oh Yea…Take some comfortable shoes. 🙂 You will walk a lot. I needed some grocerys while I was there and he also took me to the market, helped me get a phone, and showed me where the money exchange was. All of this was not included in the package and he did this all for free. It may seem like a small thing to some but not when your in a foreign country and you don’t speak a word of the language.
After my first visit I decided to go back for 2 weeks and spend them with Iana exclusively. At the end of that visit we decided that we would like to see if we could make a life together. So we started the visa process, knowing it would take 5 or 6 months and this would give us time to get to know each other better and then when she came to the USA we would have another 90 days to get married, If we both decided that’s what we wanted.
We stayed in touch with emails, phone calls, and Skype Then 2 months later I decided I had to see her. So I went back for 3 weeks . Her visa was approved almost exactly 6 months after we started. I traveled to Kharkov again to help her with the interviews and then we came back to America and the rest is history!!
We had a small church wedding 85 days after her arrival and now we are waiting for her AOS “adjustment of status” I did all the visa paperwork myself with help from The Mordinsons, my friend in the USA., and the website visajourney.com. I hope this letter helps you in your search and I have given Michael Mordinson permission to give my contact info to anyone he wishes. I would be happy to answer any questions I can.
Thank you and good luck!
Tim and Iana

PS. I first met Iana March 6th 2010. We were married March 11th 2011
