My Prayer

Orlando, FL

US is the only country in America where I can see the American culture sustained. Because US have these traits: liberty, grace, happiness, integration (of all race, ethnic groups & religion), wealth, democracy, justice, knowledge and desire to sustain these traits.

I was the 1st person from my family to actually got on the plane and travel out of my country. When I came here I was not just young but I was very naive and ignorant of the basic rules and regulations of immigration. So one mistake that was made on my I-94 by customs and my lack of understanding on how I could have fixed the mistake, has cost me more than I could have ever imagined.

It took a while for me to realize that fear and frustration can not help me. At this moment I am a single mother of 2, who is unable to expose my children to the true nature of the American Culture. I am in this limbo of not knowing if its for them or not. My prayer is that I don’t fail them and that American Dream can be theirs also one day.

Let's Talk

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
