My parents came to America first about 7 years ago, 3 years before me.  I was living in Nepal and India without them.  I had no idea that they were leaving, see.  My parents actually left together and I was left at boarding school in India so I was like, I wasn't very sure because I was like 7, maybe 8 years old back then.  So I wasn't really clear about what they were going to do with me or what was the future plan.
