  1. We were originally set to go to Australia. But my parents had their eyes set on the states, so they stayed in the refugee camp for a few years more in order to get passage to the US. My mom was pregnant with me when we had clearance, but they wouldn’t let her on the plane until I was born. Which is why I was born in Thailand and not here ^_^
