"It all started in 2002, when we first participated in the green card lottery. It seemed very interesting to work in the USA for a short time and we thought, that the lottery would be the easiest way to make that dream come true.
In 2003 and 2004 we went to the USA for vacation and we got the impression, that living and working in the USA is a fantastic opportunity for a young couple.
In 2008 we received the winning notification from The American Dream for the green card lottery DV-09, in January 2009 we had the interview and on February 2 nd I starded my new job in California".
