Around the early 1990's my family came to America. They went on a boat wich was hard for they had 7 children and had to leave friends behind(but they wrote lettters back and forth). They had to leave their mother behind and their father got sick. So the oldest daughter (at age 16) had to take care of her six younger siblings for 5-10 years until they could become a family again.
