Eleven years ago I decided to travel to this country from El Salvador. I hugged my mom very hard. We were crying and it broke my heart in two pieces. I left one piece there. Even though I knew this journey was going to be difficult and dangerous, on the other hand I was very excited and thrilled because my life was going to change with new and better opportunities.
Since I came to this country I discovered the Family Literacy Program. I started to study English and my life changed. Now I can read with my children and also I have good communication with my children’s teachers, my family’s doctor, and English speaking people.
Thank you all the Literacy Staff and teachers for the time give us.
