Ileana, You put it beautifully. I didn't realize that you had just found out the day before we left. I am thankful for this web site so the story will not be forgotten but rather be made clear and remembered. I had actually just turned 7 when we left, but our parents told us a few weeks before but made us promise not to talk about it to anyone. Their fear was that if anybody found out, someone would turn us in and jeopardize the trip. Even at the age of 7, I could tell that we had lost our freedom and had to live in fear. We have so much to be thankful for to our parents to have the faith and courage ot make the decision they did! Love, Jose Avelino
