In Fun
Relationship: Child of im/migrant

I have been in America with my father about seven years. This photo was taken on my birthday when I went back to China to visit my family. I have a little brother, and he lives with my mom in China. They want to stay in China, so they didn’t come with me and my father. Every Summer, I go back to China to visit them. Before I came to America, my cousins and I always played together on weekend. However, I only could see them in vacation after I immigrate to America because I have to go to school. So, most of the time in a year I live with my father. The time I spent with my mother, brother and other family members reduces after immigration. On holidays, like Chinese New Year, we facetime or chatting on internet.
