Letter(s) from Alexandra Ignatieva to Jessey (USA)

Letter 1

Hello my dear.
How are you today? Are you ok? How is the weather there? Today is cold a little. I missed you and your letter.
I have some good and not very good news. I think I have to share my news with you. First thing the surgery was made successful to my mom and now her life in safety. I am glad. Doctor said my mom will recover soon and can back to the home after 2-3 days. This is very good news. It made me happy! So I prayed the god and he heard me.
But then doctor said that surgery cost is 125345 rubles! It's 4730 American dollars! This is second thing.
He said, if my mom would not have medical insurance it will be more expensive. I these news made me sad. I have tried to get money to pay for surgery as soon as I could. I had some money for my trip to America, I have asked some of my friends for help and we could collect some part of money. It was about 3440 American dollars. But I was still need 1290 dollars. I didn't know what to do. I had to pay for mom's surgery during some days. I went to the bank and I tried to get a loan but they said first: it will takes about month not earlier and second they can't give me any loan and any credit because I will leave my country for work and for a living during long time or forever.
They said they can't help me in this case. So it's impossible for me to get money from bank. I was very upset and my mood was bad. I think a lot about opportunity to pay for surgery and I could find only one way. I went to agency where I had made registration to move to America and asked them about give me money back I paid them for my movement and other necessary procedures of my transportation. Some time ago when I have started my work to get documents and to get
possibility to move to America I have paid to agency about 2500 dollars and now I have asked them to get my money back.
I have explained them my situation and they said that they understand my difficulties and this bad situation. They answered that I can get money but not all the sum I have paid before. Because some part of money was spent to prepare my documents such as visa, passport, certificates, license of dentist in America and medical tests. They can't get back these money. Also they can't get money back for work they made to prepare the process of my transportation and for work of their American colleagues. So I could get only 1320$. I was glad for these kind of money, because it will be enough to pay for surgery completely! But they notified me if I will not be able to pay these kind of money until 27 December I will lose my opportunity to come to America. I have told my mom that I have paid for her surgery.
She was glad. But she was upset when she knew where I found these money. My mom always wished me happy and good life and tried to help me. But now she said that because of her I can't my dream make happen. I said here: don't worry mom, it's a life and any things may happen. I want to tell you the agency will refuse from my registration and all my documents will be lost. I will lost opportunity to get new documents to work and to live in America for some of years!! All work of my movement to America they made there and here in Russia will be lost!! It mean I wasted all my resources and all my forces!!
I don't want to think that I will lose my dream for happy future. I don't want to lose you and want to meet you in reality!!!
I want to get work there and change my life and life of my mom to more better life. I want to find good man and create family together with him! I don't want to think that I can't reach all of it because of money! I don't know what to do!
I don't know what to think! All I could to think up is if you will help me. I understand that it looks not very good but I am almost in inextricable situation and the single way out from these situation is you. I want to tell you that if you could help me to get money to pay for my coming to America it would be great! I don't know do you remember I have told you in my earlier letters when I will come to America to NYC and after I will reach agency who worked for getting work for me I will get some papers, direction to my work, tickets for train or plane if I will chose other place for a work and advance (7000 dollars) for the first time, before I start my work. I will be glad to give you your money back immediately and I could give you some extra money for your help. I am not greedy person and I will be generous when I will come. Of course we will need to meet each other but I think it will not be a problem for us. I will tell you all details of my coming to your region and you can meet me in the airport and I will return all your money you will send. I will give you little more if you want. It will be pleasure for me because you are my good friends and I think friends have to help to each other. What do you think about it? Can you help me? I have asked you about it because I see no any other way to Move to America. I want my dream will come true soon and only you can help me! I hope for you. Please let me know what do you think? I will wait for your reply with great impatience! I want to attach copies of some of my documents to you. I just want to show you that my coming to America is real intention and I will come there with your help of course.
