My mother had immigrated to America from South Korea for better opportunities. Here, she fell in love and had two children: my brother and me. However, shortly after I was born (around 2 years), my father passed away and my mom was left as a single mom in a foreign country she did not know the culture or much of the language. Yet through religion, she was able to not only strengthen herself but also become a part of a community that gave her the support she needed. Therefore, the church/religion is a large part of my mother's immigration story.
