This medalla is important to me because my Godparents from Mexico took a long time to find a medalla that was different from the other ones because they all looked the same. They wanted to get a medalla that was unique and meaningful because they wanted me to be unique and different in a good way. Once they found a medalla that was unique for me then my parents decided to travel back to Mexico so they can baptize me because my godparents couldn't come to where we were. After I was baptised my parents had to leave me with my godparents and my uncle and aunty because they had to cross the border and it was too dangerous for me because I was only 6 months. The last thing I remember is that I came back to the USA where my parents were when I was 3 years old. I came to the US with my aunt and uncle that had papers too. This medalla (Gold chain) is important to me because it reminds me of all the things my parents and my godparents did for me and sacrificed for me and I appreciate it a lot. And that's why it's important for me.
