    At an early age, I didn’t understand the concept of an immigrant family and that our resources were very limited. It wasn’t until I got older, that I finally understood and recognized the struggle that my family went and still continues to go through. My realization began when I was about 11-years old and I noticed that my father not only worked for his own small gardening service, but that he also took my older brothers to work with him. I knew it was a time for serious measures because my…

    Military brats, a term used to describe children with at least one parent that works full-time for the armed forces. In a military family, moving is a common occurrence, at least in my case it was. During my childhood, I moved at least seven times, to places like Hawaii, Cuba, Virginia, and Germany. Moving was always one of the greatest dilemmas that I had to deal with while growing up. Just a few years ago, my family almost had to pack our bags again and move to Japan. My most recent move was…

    Chapter One: Family I never knew my mother as she died when I was an infant. My stepmother did not miss an occasion to tell me that it was my fault that she died. Father had not said as much, but he did not speak of her either. Regarding her, I learned never to ask as the topic was painful for him to disclose. “A child needs a mother,” others often informed my father, “and a man needs a wife.” He seemed to have agreed, or evidently succumbed, to those comments since he remarried with great…
