Eggs and rice

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My mom often described what it was like in her youth, growing up in China. She told me that when she was little, each family would only get a certain amount of food per week. Her family would only receive a single egg every week. Even after the crisis was over, she moved to America when she was 26 because she believed there would be more opportunities for a better life here.
