    My name is Yoselin; I was born in Tijuana, B.C. When I was a child I didn’t knew my father. My mom married my step-father when I was four years old. I have lived all my life with my mom. I have a sister and a brother but I am the oldest. When I met my real father I did not want to because I thought that he did not want to live with me. When we met we quickly had a good communication. After two years I decided to live with my father and my mom only said, “If you want it is ok with me.” We decided to come to the USA although we only have visa and we do not have paper. My dad and I we are the best friends, and sometimes my mom feels jealous. I love my parents and they support me on everything I want to do. It is very important for me, that they live with me and always give me their support, which makes me feel happy and pleased, and I am proud that they are my parents.
