My Mom's Migration Story
(Permission has been asked)
In 2003-04 my mom emigrated her own country. She crossed the desert and it took her a day until she got to Houston, Texas and then she did step by step until she got to Chicago to meet my dad to head to Austin, MN During this time, she was 2 months pregnant with me (her first child) Therefore, the journey wasn't so easy.
There was also other people crossing the desert with her.
When my mom was sent back to Mexico for 2 years, she had to bring me and my sister with her. During this time my dad suffered greatly, and tried to get us back 2 times, the first time he was declined, and the second one was accepted.
Finally in 2010, My mom, sister, and I reunited with my dad again! During this time me and my sister didn't know any English.
