(Posting for my foreign friend)
Hello, My name is Nana. I am from Vietnam. 40 years ago I met my husband when he lost his wife and stay with two children, a boy 7 years and a girl 6 years old. I was a young woman 25 years who was knew nothing about life and how to raise kids. I was blind with love and thought I can be a good mom for his two kids. Soon I gave birth to my own two sons and we became a family with 4 kids. Time has gone and kids grew fast but my husband's daughter still did not accept me as her stepmom.
We had hates, quarrels, tears, and everything that I would not like to remember. As soon as she turns 16 and enrolled in a university (in another country), she left her father's house she cut all ties with us. Sometimes she called her father to ask for some money and this was the only reason for her connections with family.
One day after 5 years since she left the first time her father's house she came back and she wasn't alone. She came home with her boyfriend and she was pregnant. Her future husband was a Muslim (i wasn't against the religions) but my husband was frustrated. They asked for help with money and promised to get back them as soon as they are possible. My husband wasn't a rich man, he was a hard worker and trying to save every penny cause we have three sons and in our culture father has to help his son to create a family. But he didn't has a choice and he gave her all our savings cause she was pregnant.
That day was the last day when father and daughter saw each other. Then she went missing for 5 years until one phone call. She called her dad and say that she lives in Pakistan, had 2 kids, and seriously ill but still hopes that she will return his money. Of course, my husband never asked for the money back, he s just missing her daughter and wanted to be closer but she didn't want to. Its been almost 20 years since she had last phone call, we didn't know anything about her and her husband's family.
I always knew that my husband keeps her daughter in his heart and missing her every single day. But we didn't know anything until my son started to search on Facebook. No, she didn't have a Facebook and other social accounts but we found a man who told us that he knew a couple who similar to our describes and will try to help us. Finally, we found her, my husband was happier than ever. We learned that she already had 5 children, but her life did not become better than ours. She lives from day to day and can't afford a lot.
Why am I here? I am here because I have a dream to make a father-daughter meeting after 26 years. I always knew that all these years my husband has kept his daughter in his heart and dreams of hugging her again someday. My husband and I are getting older and who knows how many years of life God will give us anymore. I want to makes my husband happy and i know that nothing makes him happy then seeing his daughter. We are a poor family and cannot afford all the travel expenses. I just want to raise some money for a ticket for my husband and make his dream come true. Anyone reading this please help and support us. I hope my neighbor's daughter will write my story so that you can feel my sincerity because i don't know the English language. I will pray for you and your family.
