         Empieza de cuando estaba estudiando el grado 11 que conoci a un joven que ahora el es mi esposo, luego na mas llegue al  grado 12 y a los 3 anos de habernos conocido nos casamos y desde alli empeze a buscar trabajo y en ningun lado encontraba. Nos desesperamos y luego decidimos venirnos para U.S.A. pero al venirnos para aca, pense que todo hera facil pero no fue asi, porque.

         Para mi es un pasado muy triste, por todo lo que pasamos en el camino cuando nos venimos con mi esposo, caminamos bastante para llegar a la linea del tren, luego no pasaba tubimos que dormir en el monte 5 noches, que gracias a Dios fue el unico que nos cuido.

         Porque lo unico que podia ver cuando amanecia hera el cielo brillar los arboles, y las aves cantar, en medio de todo eso estaba yo, llorando y clamando a Dios que me sacara de alli porque, sentia que nunca nunca iba salir de alli.

         Porque estaba sin comida ni agua, pero por la misericordia de Dios aguante, y sin darme cuenta traia un bebe en mi bientre, pase en el tren camine y gracias a Dios a mi bebe no le paso nada, .

         Pase por desierto sola porque a mi esposo lo regresaron y fue mas dificil para mi . Luego al entrar en Houston mis hermanos llegaron por mi, cuan los vi senti paz y tranquilidad pero no sabia la vida como hera aqui rn USA. Sin saber ingles y sin saber como trabajar pero gracias al todo poderoso estoy hasta donde estoy.

         Ahora ya con 2 ninos y mi esposo, poco a poco vamos echandole gana para salir adelante y sigo biendo ese cielo tan lindo como la noche que dormia en el monte pero ahora en un hogar.

            It all began when I was in 11th grade. I met a young man that now is my husband.  After which I went to 12th grade and after three years of knowing this man we got married.From that day we began to look for work.  We were unable to find work anywhere.  We were very desperate and after giving it thought we decided to travel to the USA, but I was under the influence that everything was going to be easy but it didn't turn out that way.

            It is a very sad past for me to talk about, mostly because of what happened during our journey.  We walked forever to arrive at the train lines and once we did we had to wait five days and nights sleeping in the mountains. I thank God because he is the only one that protected us.

            The only thing that I could see when I would wake would be the bright sky, the trees, and the birds singing, and in the middle of all of this I was crying and pleading with God that he might get me out of here because I felt that I was never going to get out.  I was without food or water and at the mercy of God and without knowing that I carried a baby inside of me I took the train and walked and thanked God that nothing happened to my baby. I passed through the desert alone because they took my husband back and it was way more difficult for me to be without him.           

            Once I got to Houston my siblings came to get me. When I saw them I felt peace and tranquility but I wasn't familiar with the way life worked here in the US.  Without knowing English or how to work I thank the most powerful that I am where I am today. 

            Now with two children and my husband, little by little we strive to move forward and I continue to see the beautiful sky and it reminds me of the nights I spent in the mountains only now I am in my home.
