Earlier this week, a morning scan of the headlines drew my eye to this story on CNN’s website. The long and short of it is that a family in Japan is being split up. “Why?” you ask? Because about 15 years ago, mom and dad entered the land of the rising sun illegally, became productive members of society, contributed to the Japanese economy and had a child. Recently mom got busted (the reasons for which are somewhat foggy) and now mom and dad are now in the Philippines…Without their 13-year-old Japan-born, Japanese speaking daughter.
The Japanese government, in it’s mercy, gave the girl a choice. Stay in Japan with your aunt and continue your studies and social development, or leave everything you’ve ever known and go with your parents to a foreign country to start again.
She chose her country. Or at least that’s the way the media’s telling the story.
