"Bonjour, My uncle was an American GI from Chicago during WWII and after the liberation of Paris, met my French aunt. It was love at first sight, even though neither spoke the other's language. They got married and sponsored my dad a few years after my aunt immigrated. He had been a French POW during the duration of the war. After coming to the U.S., he got work in a steel mill. On a trip back to France, he met my mom, again love at first sight. They had a shotgun wedding, and I was born later that year. He brought his new family back to Chicago. We went back and forth between the two countries a few times. My sister was also born in France, but was raised here as well. I am so grateful my parents spoke French to us all the time, even if we always answered in English and were embarrassed when they spoke to us in French in public. They have passed on, but I have friends and family on two continents who are very important to me. My upbringing in two cultures has enriched my
life in so many ways and made me open and tolerant of other cultures." - Catherine Y. Fridey, Immigrant Archive Project Community page contribution.
