Dear President Barack Obama,
     My name is Jessica Shevtsoff and I am 13 years old. I am writing this letter to you asking you to let my mother, Vera Kuzmenko, out of prison. She was sentenced to 14 years. After she was arrested, I cried days and nights, almost choking myself in tears and crying. It is almost unhuman to separate children and parent. My mom is a very honest, hardworking, loyal and kind woman. All of her tax clients love her. She always tought me how to be honest and kind, and that "God is watching me of what I am doing, even when nobody sees me". She took me to church. She is my best friend, with whom I share all of my secrets. I do not know much about her case, but I truly believe that there was some mistake. My mom was occused of "mortgage fraud" and lying about borrowers income on their loan applications and hiding millions of dollars somewhere. All of this does not make sense because my mom never lies, she did not have Real Estate license and never had this kind of money. As a tax preparer she worked between January and April, and the rest of the year we were helping grandparents in their backyard, feeding chickens or planting and weeding vegetable garden. One time we went to Marine World. We always dreamed of traveling to Europe, but my mom did not have money. We never lived lavish or extravagant and rich life. My mom's main goal was to raise an honest, loyal, educated with high morals daughter. My mom is not gready.

Dear President Barack Obama, now I live with my grandparents who are sick often and are very old. I panic every day knowing that they will die soon, and I will ent up in forster care. My grandfather, 81, was diagnosed with bladder cancer and my grandmother,71, can barely move around after both knees replacement surgery. I am very sad and lonely. I do not want to share whats going on in my life with my friends because they don't understand. I need my mother home. I want to have a normal family. I want to be happy again and to smile, but not to cry every day. Please let my mother out of prison and to be with me.

God bless,


Jessica Shevtsoff
