I was born in England, and moved to an Air Force base just outside of Washington D.C. when I was three years old, with my American father and English mother. A few years later, we moved back to England, this time with my brother, who had been born in the States. And again, a few years later, (I was 9 this time) yet ANOTHER move. I was very lucky to be in one place for quite some time after that, until just before my senior year of high school, when my father retired from the military. I had barely enough time to get to know my new classmates, let alone the large extended family that I had on my father’s side, before going off to college. I feel as if they have this other little family; this other life and life experiences that they have shared with each other. I desperately wish that I had gotten the chance to share it with them.
