The letter from my father

I couldn’t stop sobbing when I touched this letter. How can I stop crying my eyes out!

Then I cried out of loud during reading it again.

For so many years, every word he said is still the same like yesterday.

Haixu my child,

This is the second time I talk to you through writing. First, I hope you’ll keep this letter with you, you may read it when you are home sick.

After you arrived Taiwan, get a phone number, tell us the cellphone number and home phone number as well. Call us as more as you can, keep contact with your sisters and brother more often on the internet.

Try to see if you can make money by your own hands in Taiwan, and save some money, just in case for some rainy days. “The person has no forethought, having the immediate worries necessarily.”(Chinese saying 人無遠慮,必有近憂。)

Basically, have a good life with Hanxing, if there’s the time, you can’t make it work anymore, keep it in mind, there’s the place called home, and your parents whom love you the most.

There’re many things, I’ve written to Hanxing already. If he doesn’t keep the letter, you’d better keep it for him.

Take the letters out when you miss home, it could comfort you in some way.

Your mom will go to Shenyang, will say goodbye to you at the airport.

The love parents have for the children is always caritas, the love will never change.

The older we get, the more we’ll miss you.

In the past 8 years, you mom sacrificed and worried a lot for you. We really hope you’ll have a happy marriage, but we also have a lot of considerations. We hope you tale this opportunity to have a new start in your life.

Have a happy life, then we’ll be happy for you too.

We hope you’ll fit in the new environment and the new life style there, be forbearing and conciliatory for safety reasons. Safe is the most important thing.

Don’t know what have I written, just stop here. Think more and react carefully.”(Chinese saying 多思慎行)

Wish you a happy life.

Your baba and mama 07,6,23
