The story of my family has been told time and time again but it's always interesting to me to hear the different perspectives around the same story. America talks to us about how having her dad be deported to Mexico impacted her family and her youth. Even after her family was reconciled things at home were still a little broken. We get a glimpse into what it was like for a child who understood her fathers alcoholism -- but still prayed every night for God to take his addiction away. --If you feel like you need help with a substance abuse addiction please click the link below.
