Coming To America – An Irish American Story

Posted by lovinglegacyvideo on December, 1, 2018

Coming to America and arriving to Chicago from Ireland in the 70’s, life was very hard. Her husband had a great job opportunity that brought them, but raising kids in a new city with no social connections, getting robbed in the first week, facing a colleague who’s husband had run away with an Irish girl, and so much more. “In America, nobody cared if we were Catholic or Protestant, it was really lovely…” “The pain in my past has definitely made me a more empathetic person.”

I love this story, so full of details about the challenges of relocating to a new city, a new country, learning a whole new culture, feeling alone, and yet making new friendships and learning her way, overcoming adversity and eventually thriving.

This work is so powerful.
