My Grandmother ❤️

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My grandmother had a rough life in her country, she became a widow in the late 70s and left with 10 kids to raise all on her own. In 1986 My grandmother immigrated to America from the Dominican Republic.Without knowing a word of English she did any type of job that was possible from working in factories to cleaning houses and babysitting. My grandmother is the rock that holds my family together. She did anything and everything for her kids and brought every single one of them to this country legally. It wasn't easy for her but she shows me that things are possible and if it weren't for her I wouldn't be where I am today and for her I am thankful.
