Almost 25 years ago my husband, my son (who back then was a 5 month old baby boy) arrived into this country. We knew we had to forget about the pain we felt for leaving everything behind -our 21 years of life in which we grow loving our families, our friends, our land, our culture, and our traditions. Taking the decision to cross the border is not a thoughtless decision, but if you think too much about it, you will not be able to do it. Arriving to a new country where you are a complete stranger in every way isn't something anyone can easily decide to do.
