When I was 11 I found I was adopted, My real mother told me she did not know where I could find my real dad she gave me some information and I used allot of money and more than 4 years after my 22nd birthday looking for him. Years passed and late in 2012 I found documents from the court far away and it solved the one problem we had for years, his identification number, when I had it we could find him in few hours, well we did and it was not what I wanted to hear ... he had passed away in 1997-01-01 The dream of not having to be able to hear his voice or see him was very heart breaking, I spent allot of time listening about what he used to like and do and the way he sang silly songs. Today I dont even have a picture of him just one letter asking If I am ok. So every sons hero is his dad and I never saw mine ... One thing my mother told me was that when i was born he always used to say he wanted me to become a pilot. I have saved up most of the money required, but I work is very slow the last few months.
See ... I am in South Africa ... not a bad country at all, I understand the past and the future and things needed to change, things need to be balanced and I dont blame anyone for it, its life, I was not involved in the aparthied laws of my country South Africa, I was just out of school when the new government took over, I aslo know what its like walking few miles to school with no shoes, I know what its like not to have electicity for weeks and having very little barely scrapping by every month while growing up. I never made these laws nor did anyone in my family history. I and all white men are paying the debts of those whites who made those laws just by being here, today I find it hard to save money and at this point for the last few months (since late October 2012) last year I have just been breaking even and I dont want to touch my savings i have so far, then I will never become a medical pilot. I am not employed but I do work for people so do make some icome, but its so hard to save the last R17,500 (around $1,750) of the R68,000 ($6,800) that I need to for my flying lessons and I feel if i dont get there soon I will spend what I have saved already to become a pilot. I want to fly in africa and get a job to become an air ambulance pilot to fecth people and bring the here where there are hospitals that can help them.
I have always loved Cargo planes and Medical millitary planes but I dont want to fly the jumbo's or fly for an airliner.
I have promised if God's will is for me to get the help that I will help the next person to become a pilot by paying half for his/her lessons in that way giving back and thanking what I have received from above.
This is the first time ever I ask help from anyone, Being adopted taught me independance, courage and honesty respect for others and how to look after myself. Talking to my friend last week he suggested I try this website, I created a facebook for the first time too today :)
I am just taking a wild chance ... if it does work out my dads dream that became mine will become reality, if it does not ... I will keep trying on my own!
Thank you for taking the time reading this, bless you.
