My mother and father came from India. They were born there and got educated there as well. Both my mother and my father lived in India for about 21 years before they decided to leave.
They decided to come to the United States because they wanted a better life for themselves and their soon to be kids in the future. Also things were not really working out well for them in India. There were also many more opportunities and jobs for them in the United States.
The decision to come to the United States was very hard for my parents because they would have to leave their family members and possibly never see them again in the future. Also they have been living in India their whole life so it is very hard to go somewhere else because they have many memorable memories that they will leave behind. Another thing is that they had to leave their friends.
My Mom and Dad came to America separately. My Dad came first but he didn't come straight to the United States. He went to many other places first such as Thailand, South Africa and Zimbabwe. My Mom came afterwards and she went straight to the Unites States. They both got here by taking a plane.
Both my Mother and Father have been in the United States for a little bit more than 20 years.
When my family arrived, my dad had a friend that came to the United States before he did and had more experience. So he was showing my parents around and eventually he found my dad a job. Then later on they bought a new house and my mom also got a job afterwards.
