Well for my parents the American Dream was to come to America and make a new life for themselves Back in China things werent so easy Earning a living was difficult My parents heard of America and its great opportunities and high standards of living and so they prepared to come to the United States As children my parents lived in a old area of Fukein China Their lives were not easy They woke up early in the morning to go to school then came back home to do their chores like cleaning washing cooking watching over their brothers and sisters and working on their small farm It was quite difficult and backbreaking but they needed to do all that to provide for the family in any way they could For my mother is was even more difficult after the death of her father my grandfather She had to work extra hard to keep her household in order As my parents became more independent they knew that they wanted more for their children When my parents got married they planned immediately to start to save up money to go to America They wanted a better life for themselves and their children My father worked hard for the opportunity to come here and the hard work paid off He spent some years in Hong Kong working in his familys herbal shop trying to save up enough money to come to America The first to arrive in America was my mother She was the one that was to start our lives here When she arrived to America She was pregnant and so working to make a living was kind of hard but had the support of my father and uncle In 1979 my father took his first glimpse of his baby son and then went out to look for a job It was difficult but it was a lot easier here then back at home
