    That is great to hear that your family is slowly but surely coming over here the the states. I wish that more states would be as receptive to immigrants from all countries. It saddens me to see the way the immigrants are looked here in our state vs. the way they are treated in South Florida.

    So glad to hear they are settling in Carrie! May the Lord's hand continue to be in the midst of all they have to do to achieve freedom here.
    Thanks for keeping us updated on such a personal issue, hopefully it opens many eyes to what our gente goes through…

    Great post. I have been checking every day – anxiously waiting to hear how they are doing. Glad they are doing well. I am from Puerto Rico and my family has a lot of friends with similar stories of leaving Cuba with only the clothes on their backs. I look forward to hearing more when the time is right. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you everybody for the nice words and good wishes for la familia…
    They are doing very well, considering how completely foreign and bizarre the process of assimilation is…
    I know they are going to do even better when the whole of their immediate family is here.
    We all will.
