Country of Origin: Honduras

My moms name is Manuela Osorio.She is an immigrant here and she came from Honduras in 1989. Honduras is a small country in Central America. She was 28 when she came and she came here with my cousin.They left because there weren't any good jobs with good paying money.When they got here they lived with my uncle(her brother). He came here because he was chosen to be in the war and then he escaped and never came back. My dad was in Florida at that time. My mom learned English because she went to school here. She went to Welles High School. She really doesn't miss anything, because she lives in a great place that has many opportunities.
