Without the experiences and adventures of my brothers and sisters, this book wouldn’t have the necessary condiments for an almost perfect recipe. When I started writing more than 20 years ago,... More > I didn’t think it would take this long nor be so complicated. This book doesn’t read like a novel since it is cumulative and not progressive - each chapter is not necessarily a continuation of the one before, but rather a telling of a time in our lives that led to our family reunion. This is not merely a tale of my journey from Colombia to America. It is a true story about love, hardship, travel, adventure, tears, and ultimately, joy. A family as large as mine shared one common dream: to be together in the United States of America. There was no rhyme or reason in choosing the methods to get here, but at the end of the day, our love and devotion for each other brought us where God destined us to be: in the land of the free. We were more than just wetbacks, we were lovers and believers. This is our story.< Less

As the staff discovers daily, Myrt still is a unique character at the age of 107!< Less
