Baptism Necklace

Relationship: Im/migrant

    In most religions you must be baptized I am catholic, so I did, when I did I got an important object to our family. When they baptized me, they gave me a necklace I was only four, so I had no idea how important it was. As I grew older I started to learn more about it and its value. The necklace was originally my Grandfathers who lived in Mexico. He got it when he got baptized in Mexico and he valued it. When my father was born he later got baptized and received the necklace, he later took it to the U.S.A. The Necklace was getting old so what my father did was take it to a shop to get fixed, so it could last longer. A few years later I was born and as I said in the beginning I received the necklace and now I know the value of the value of the necklace that was passed down to the next generations.
