Jeff and Nadia Duvall from Arlington, VA
(married October 25, 2007)
"Dear EI friends & members,
I recently traveled to Russia to marry my dream Russian Bride, Nadia.
She is from Siberia and I spent one month living with her after our marriage. From my stay with her, my love and respect for Nadia grew beyond what I thought possible. And I learned a lot more about life in Russia, and my admiration for the Russian people and culture has grown.
Now we must wait for her visa to come through...a crazy and lengthy process that may take many months to complete...but I will return to see her again very soon. I look forward to the day when Nadia and I can come to one of the local EI parties. I know she will enjoy meeting other American-Russian couples and women from her country.
Although I did not meet Nadia through EI, Natasha has been very helpful to me as a valuable adviser and guide when I had questions or concerns. Thank you Natasha!
