Other Side of Our Family

We have other family visiting from Asia this week while we're here also. My daughter-in-law is Alice and her mom lives here with her, my son and their boys. Her sister, Mirna and Mirna's daughter, Leslie and Leslie's hubby, Benedict are visiting for a couple of weeks.

Here is Etienne with her Dad, Benedict, who is thinking of moving over here to U.S. We're certainly glad they decided to move over.
This is absolutely not a quick process by any means but it gives you some idea of the intensity of people wanting a better life for their children. Leslie is an obstetrician so she'll be giving up a lot just to move here. To continue to be a doctor here would mean she'd have to go back to school and start ALL OVER to be a doctor in the U.S. - start from scratch, the very bottom! They want to come here because all of Leslie's siblings and grandmother are here. Her mom, my DIL's sister is already wanting to move here. It's a hard decision but they want to be with all the family. So when I hear people decry the U.S., I then always ask why do so many people want to come here?

Leslie and I were talking this morning about this for about an hour in the kitchen and her eyes got HUGE, lit up and a huge smile came on her face when I asked her the question. She said it is everyone's dream to live here plus she wants to be near her siblings and her mom will move here too. But this is why America is here - for people to thrive and bless this nation and have a better way of life for their children. I'll post pix of Leslie when she and her mom return from "shopping"!! LOL But look at that sweet little gorgeous face!! Wouldn't it be wonderful to her to be an American too?!??!! All of our family from Asia have become U.S. citizens.
