Emanuel H. – 7 years old

I was born in Charlotte. I am an american citizen and I did not know that my parentes came  to the United States without  papers in 1995.

My dad was deported in January 2012. I am an only child and my mom has to work hard to provide me with everything I need. She works  long hours and I don’t get to see her much. I don’t have anyone to play soccer with , to help me with homework or anyone who can come to my school events..  It made me very happy when my dad called me on my birthday. My mom told me that I have become an angry and depressed boy.  My grades have gone down and I only want to see my dad again. Sometimes, I wish that I could buy a superman cape to fly and see my dad.
