A Long Way

The Texas Story Project.

When I was little it was rough for my mom to take care of my siblings and me.

My sister was 4, my brother 2, and I was a baby still, so you can say we were crazy. My mom did not have a car so it was rough going places. Luckily food and clothing stores were across from our apartment. I remember having to cross the road to the other side. Sometimes we took the bus.

My mom and dad came from Mexico to Texas so it was going to be hard for them. As time went on, my dad got a better job and next thing you know we were leaving to our new house. We remodeled the house. Here we are healthy and safe so I thank God for giving us a better life. I hope you liked my story.
