Welcome to my blog!
My name is Liz aka La Potosina
When I was thirteen years old, my family made the difficult decision to move to another country. Like many children this age that have to go through this experience, I had to leave everything I knew behind and make roots in a foreign country that I knew nothing about. Some children transition into this process very easily while others have a difficult time adjusting.
It is not easy leaving behind everything you once knew –your extended family, friends, acquaintances, neighborhood, school, community– and one day wake up in a place where people look, think, and speak different than you.
For me, as an older child, it was difficult to adjust. Even though I learned the language, the customs, traditions, and even formed a special bond with my new home, I still missed my country of origin. I always have.
The Point of Convergence was created as a way to have the closure I wasn’t able to have when I migrated to another country. It is dedicated to the memory of the country I left behind in order to make a new one my home. It is symbolic of the place, the crossroads, where I found myself once as a child refusing to look back yet realizing what I was leaving behind.
I invite you to follow my blog as we journey together through memoirs, anecdotes, photographs, stories about what it was like living in Mexico and what is like living in the United States now.
I thank God for his wisdom, strength, and love in Jesus’ name.
“I will sing of the LORD’s great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.”
