Relationship: Im/migrant

I got this album when I was 6. I came to New York from my homeland. The picture that is contained in it is very important to me. They are pictures of my cousins, aunts, and uncles who does not live in New York. I haven't seen them for 9 years. Only me, my sister, and my parents came to the United States. I would love to have more of my relatives here but talking to them on the phone and seeing pictures of them would do for now. During Eed, which is a Muslim holiday, I would look through the album to see the relatives who are not here.
