My son has been living in the U.S for a few years now, and he and his wife were about to have their first child a few months ago. I wanted to be there to experience the joyous occasion with them, so I decided to fill out an ESTA and stay with them. This was my first time traveling out of the country and flying in an airplane. I was scared, but for my son, his wife, and their baby, I could take it. I had a fear that something would go wrong on the plane and it would crash in the ocean without anyone being able to find our location, and eventually I would drown.
