10: Katherine Lacroix is a 36 year old girl who I picked to be my immigrant. She came from a family who worked on a farm and they worked all day and almost all night. She and her family didn't like working like that any more, so they decided to go to the United States to get a better job.
11: But when they go to the United States, they figured they needed a house. So they rented a house with a lot of other people. There were about 10-15 people in one house, with hardly any windows, it was dirty. Nobody liked it.
12: Katherine Lacroix and her family got the the U.S., but there time at Ellis Island was horrible and took to long, they thought anyway. They didn't like there food and stuff, but they did like that there was a nice little room for the girls to be together, she like that. But when they finally got to the U.S. she thought it was going to be everything she hoped for. Some of her experiences were good, but a lot of them were things she didn't like. Including the house they lived in and their environment. But one thing she did like was that she and her family would be working at better jobs.
13: Katherine actually meet someone in the U.S. She met her long distance cousin, and she was so relived! She had finally met her cousin!! She as been waiting all her life to meet someone that she knows from the U.S She was so happy, she could finally move in with her, and later on her family could live with her also. She had a wonderful time with her family and her cousin. When she finally met her cousin, she felt that the U.S was now her home, because she had her whole family with her, and they were together.
15: Diary Entry Katherine Lacroix 5/15/1898 7:30 This last year has been just great, I found my long distance cousin in the U.S. and we moved in with her. Everything has been just awesome, I just feel so happy. I'm so glad we moved here!! I can't believe it!! Were all just so happy, the environment is much better over here, and the smell is just wonderful! It's so full of sweet smelling flowers and tree's. I honestly just love it here, and I thank my cousin for taking us into her house.
