“After years of hard work and sweat they were finally able to buy their first home.”

 

The story of how my mother immigrated to Canada was quite simple. My grandmother (my mothers mom) left Jamaica when my mother was only 2 years old. She was left with her older sister and grandmother to raise her. 11 years after that my great grandmother passed away and my grandmother applied for her two kids to come to Canada. 1988 May 11 was my mothers first day in Canada.

When they finally bought their first home For years they couldn’t afford to buy a house here. After years of hard work and sweat they were finally able to buy their first home. Everything was falling into place
