Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
I decided to join my new homeland.
I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Sometime in late July of 2000, I rented a Budget truck, loaded all my belongings, my family and drove over 2,000 miles to Hillsboro, OR. A mere 6 months later I moved to my house in Forest Grove. This has been the longest time I've spent in one place since I came to the US in June of 1988. My two daughters were born here. I feel at home. Finally.
