A Plane Ticket to Meet Josie
Organized by: Joanne Rodriguez
Hi. We are Josie & Laurentiu and this is our story.
We are two simple people, from different sides of the blue marble, who found each other by chance on the amazing world wide web. Josie got in touch with me for the first time on my birthday and our instant connection was so strong, that I later came to realize that she might be the most beautiful birthday gift I ever got.
Josie is an amazing artist, a talented caricaturist, and I am an IT Specialist and an aspiring app developer that hopes to have his first project done by the end of the year.
Josie lives in Kenosha, WI, and she's the kindest, warmest person with the most beautiful laugh. Her love for life and everything around her is really inspiring and it can be seen in her amazing artwork. Ever since we found each other, we've been talking every single day and she's the first person in my life that the more I discover, the more I want to find out about her. We've brought laughter, music, kind words and hope into each other's lives, and an infinite desire to spend as much time together as possible, even though, we live on completely different times. There are only so many things one can express with words and I would love to just have the chance to meet her and her family in person.
I live next to the airport in Brno, Czech Republic and every single time a plane takes off and flies above my house, I wish it would take me to Josie. It's silly, I know and all of our friends think we're crazy for trying to meet like this. But we think it takes a little bit of craziness and faith to dare and try to find our place in the world next to our better half, and why not, maybe true happiness along the way.
With our current revenues we can't afford the airfare so that we can meet. At least not for a few months, until we'll be able to scrape up some money, with a lot of effort. We know it's a long shot, but we're hoping there are some good souls in this world that believe in us like we do, and with God's will, could help us gather the necessary money to buy a plane ticket, hopefully in August, so I can visit Josie in her home town.
We thank everyone who helped us so far and for believing in us and our story and we'd like to share with all of you a few moments from our lives so far, in the pictures below.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity!
