This personal narrative explains that, having been born and growing up in a land far from the U.S., both in terms of distance and customs, the author's highs and lows truly began when he left his native China to come to the United States. Education that permits a new life of freedom and opportunity, becoming a U.S. citizen, marriage and the birth of his first child, the author describes as the high points. The paper lists the downs as the health problems of his first-born, separation from his parents in terms of miles and new customs and the health of his mother.

From the Paper:

"Seeing my parents in my child's eyes brings me to a second low point- separation from my parents, so far away. I miss them. I never gave it much thought when I left to come to America. But, now I realize that we are now separated not only in terms of miles, but also language and new customs and a granddaughter they have only seen pictures of. It is always a low point when families have to be separated and the joys and sorrows of life cannot be shared together and in person."
