I Had No Choice

by Caroline Grove
(Tillamook, Oregon, USA)

In 1966, at the age of almost 16, my parents, my older brother and my younger sister immigrated to Oregon from New Zealand, but I am originally from the Netherlands, our sponsors lived in Gladstone.

So having lived in three different countries, I wouldn't live anywhere else but in Oregon. I love everything about Oregon, the weather, the people and mainly the atmosphere. But to tell you the truth I live in Tillamook now and it trumps all the places I have lived in so far.
