From Mom:
Mother’s Day is a recognition of the central role mothers should play in our lives.  Too many children are separated from their mothers as a result of many unjust systems, including the broken immigration system.  
On this Mother’s Day, Members of Congress should imagine what it would have been like to live as children without a parent and fix our immigration system now.

Thank you for loving me even when you could not understand me, for being as strong as you are gentle, and for teaching me to fight as fiercely as you love.
I owe you everything.

To Mom:
This is my mom doing her “Kim Yuna” wave. Her strength and resilience inspires me everyday. I remember praying on our knees every day for our visas as a child. We need reform that is not punitive to parents who sacrifice everything for their children.  We need a better reform. For all the mothers out there who did whatever it took for our success. We owe it all to them.

My mom and grandma are my rocks - I owe so much to them. Their selflessness and countless sacrifices have given me the chance to make my dreams come true, when theirs did not. Their unconditional love pushes me through every day.
Thank you mommy and Ba Ngoai.

To Mom:
Mom, your life is written on your hands. Every callus, every bruise tells a story of the hardships you endured and the sacrifices you made for you children. You are my biggest advocate, my teacher, and my role model.
Grandma, thank you for your compassion, your strength, and your love. We miss you.

From Mom:
돈을 많이 벌고 명성을 얻는 일을 하는 것 보다 다른 사람들과 더불어 사는 기쁨을 알고 행복해하며 살기를 바란다.
Rather than doing work that makes a lot of money or brings you fame, I hope you learn the joys of being with others and live a happy life.
