    I would love to be able to share my story- and exchange experiences and dialog with people who are going through the immigration process here in the United States- LEGALLY, of course, and how it is tearing you apart- How do little people like me get attention and put a human face on this gut-wrenching process?? Any compassionate parties who would like to help me with this, Please contact me!
