I am Still Hoping, Helping and Writing!

 Yes, I know you may have been wondering Why I have not written anything in a while. Some even have wondered f I have stopped writing my blog. To be honest with you, I was considering not writing anymore. Why? Because I have been feeling down,- more than usual – and I think it has to do with the holidays. First Thanksgiving and now Christmas. I didn’t know what to write about other than sad things such as how much this year’s Thanksgiving sucks because I was not there with my family. Since I did not want my blog to be only about negative stuff, I am glad I did not write my blog. The purpose of my blog is to share how deportation affects families, particularly mine. But most important is to bring some type of hope to other deportees or people that are about to be deported.

So, as I was getting ready to close my blogging account, I decided to pray over it instead. I said to myself  “God I am so busy re-building my life  here and I really have not time to commit to my writing so let me know what to do!” Next day my answer came.

I woke up and read my emails and someone had contacted me telling me that my story has given her hope.  She is about to be deported this month and that she wants my advice on where to live and what schools I recommend for her kids. So I answered her email and I am currently helping her look for an apartment near where I live. I have always found pleasure and comfort for helping others. That is what humans should do. Love and help each other. So I have decided that I will continue to write and share my story of struggles and hope after deportation!

Wife of combat veteran deported to Mexico on August 3, 2018, with no criminal record after 22 years in the U.S., marriage, and children. Starting over. This is my story of hope after deportation. I hope by hearing my story as I'm healing and starting over, if you are going through something similar, you can know that just because you're being deported, your life is not over.
