 This CD album stores a lot of great memories my family and I had over the years, especially when we were in China. It connected my family together when we migrated. I didn’t stay in China for very long since my family immigrated from China to the United States when I was young. I spent a lot of time with my grandparents on my father’s side and they would take me to festivals in China. My mother, father, and oldest sister were the first to go to America. They arrived in Canada first, then Florida. My parents never finished High school due to family problems. They worked at Asian restaurants and had hobbies to support the family financially while my oldest sister was learning English. Eventually they came back to China and stayed for a few years. Then we all moved to Massachusetts. I forgot most of what had happened by now but the CD album reminds me of all the great times I had and what my family did before I was even born. I spent most of my time watching them because I didn’t have friends around or other entertaining activities when I moved.  My family couldn’t spend much time or interact with my grandparents and my other family members in China until much later. This CD album is important to my family since it connected my family together.
