Hey.My name is Orlando Perez.This is my crazy emigration story.Let me start off by saying My life in Mexico was perfect.I had an amazing family,great friends,and a loving girlfriend.
My life was perfect...or so i thought.My parents said that they though it would be best if they went to America and looked for better jobs than the ones in Mexico.They left us in Mexico with our grandma..
Years passed and our parents finally decided to bring me and my 2 siblings to America.I was sad because i had to leave everything,But on the other hand i was happy because i got to be reunited with my parents once again.
Crossing the border was hard but i knew i had to do it.When I arrived to the "big apple" it was as if i was on another planet.The people were totally different I didn't understand a single word and i had no money.
My parents said in order to start working i had to learn English.So i did...I got a job and i slowly started to adapt to my new environment.Something was missing though i was missing my family,friends,and girlfriend from Mexico
This is the crazy part.Remember my girlfriend i mentioned in the beginning.Yeah she also came to New York and we got back together...Years later we moved in and had 2 daughters Caitlin and Patricia.
