12: Dear Family, How much I do miss you. My trip has been very long and hard. I never expected this, I thought America would be so much better, however it is almost just the same. How much we were all fooled. I miss you, & if you make it through contact me.
13: Dear Family, Although it wasn't what I expected; America is a little bit better. There is still prejudice but I do think that it maybe that is everywhere. I am liking it better and better. I am going to look for work today. Wish me luck! Hope to see you soon.
14: Dear family, I have found work with $5 by the hour; it is enough to get by. I cannot wait to see you if/when you get here. I love you all and am praying for you to be here soon.!
