Both of my parents were born in Mexico. My Father came to the United States when he was only thirteen and my mother came to the United States when she was only three. Coming from Mexico they didn't have very much. My dad traveled the long journey with his ten brothers and sisters. My mom traveled with her parents and my two tios and my tia. By the way that we are living today, you would never know what kind of background my parents came from. When my mom was little, all she had to play with were rocks that she found on the ground. Her family couldn't afford anything, not even all the basic necessities. My parents have gained so much. My dad is now an owner of a construction company and my mom is the president of a plumbing company. I am very fortunate to live such a lavish lifestyle. Even though I have so much more than my parents, I carry on most of the traditions my parents brought with them.
