My name is Connor and my mom and my three brothers (14, 10, and 1) are going to be flying to America. I have not seen them in several years and this is going to be a great cost to her. My third brother had been recently born so my mother was no working for the past couple months. She told me she would be coming this summer and i only recently found out that she is taking out a loan to fund it. I did not know this was her goal to travel here, and I know this is something she will be paying off for a long time afterwards.
My oldest brother Ben was born in America and knows what is was like. He will be going to the equivalent of high school soon and my mother wants that to be his focus in the next few years. She is worried this may be one of the last times she will get to take him as a kid on a large trip like this. He wants to see so much, I live in California and they will be coming to me. She has told me the things he wants to go do and I know that I can not afford the half of it.
The middle brother was also born in America but I am not sure how much of it he remembers. He moved to Europe with my mom when he was four and the way he talk, he sounds like a native to Slovakia.
The youngest brother was born about one year ago, and has never traveled outside of Slovakia. I have never seen him yet other than photos, which is not acceptable to me as a form of introduction. I am not sure he will remember it much, but it would mean the world to me and my family for him to visit with them.
Her husband, not my biological dad, will also be going. He is a good man but the cost for five plane tickets from Slovakia to California is not something he can do easily.
