Ah Mee's New Job

Ah Mee has a new job. She started just before Thanksgiving at the Royal Paper Company putting tissue into boxes. The hours are difficult as she works 4:30 PM to 3 AM, but because of the 10-hour shifts, she has Friday, Saturday and Sunday off to be with the children. Because buses don't run at 3 in the morning, Ah Mee must pay for some kind of car service, which costs about $100 a month to bring her and some other people home at 3 AM. That's a huge expense for this family, but she is grateful for her job.

We also learned recently that there is another child in the family. He is the elder son and is still in Thailand where he got married without the rest of the family being there. It was very disappointing for them not to be with him for that. He is hoping to be able to come to the United States with his new wife to join his family here.
