Happy Fourth Of July!PARENTING | Nirasha Jaganath | July 4, 2009 at 8:18 am
It has been over 10 years since I have landed to this country. I knew nothing of the country and had never set foot in the USA before I moved here. Television was my only window to what America had to offer. I chose to come here, sadly, based on the fact that I knew no-one here and wanted an adventure. Although many commended the bravery in the move I knew it was based on not such profound decisions.
Either way the past 10 years have been a rollercoaster ride, meeting my husband out here and have my 2 little girls born here. My eyes are not closed to thinking that all is perfect here, but I have learned that the opportunity to do all does exist, it may be difficult but it is there. I miss South Africa and my family immensely but I am happy to call the USA my home!
Happy 4th of July to you and yours!
