My dad moved from Mexico to Chicago. He needed money to support my family. He got here when he was thirteen years old. He had gone to California before he got here. He also knew my aunt before he got here. His friends told him where to find aplace to stay. He heard people speake English and learned at the same time. My dad really missed my family. My dad remembers the tall buildings he saw when we got here.
