The family secret
To a child, family is everything and the template for how the world should be. But as the child leaves the nest, albeit gradually to school, and then more regularly as adulthood settles in, one's view of family inevitably comes to the notion that 'my family is weird'.
And this feeling is more true for immigrant children. For whatever normality may exist, it is still likely different in the cultural context – and all the weird is amplified more so.
Ironically, through the process of discovering our differences, we will meet those who aren't so. As immigrant children connect and share, there comes the realisation that weird is actually special, and that sometimes it's also actually more normal.
Family is not perfect, but it is familiar.
