When I just turned 7, my parents decided to send me to India for school for 3 years. I ended up being there for 7 years instead; 5 years with a legal guardian and 2 years in a boarding school. I've been through the adjusting period where kids our age didn't accept us as classmates and friends. Going through with all of that without the support of your father or your mother must have been incredibly difficult. Its good to know there's somebody out there who has gone through similar childhood as me. When you came back to your family here in the states, how was adjusting to everything you missed? Were your cousins and friends surprised when you didn't understand small references that you missed out on? I've been back for almost 8 years now and that still happens to me every now and then
