Missing Family in Cozad, Nebraska

Cozad, Nebraska

Story Narrative:

Talk about how you came to live in your town.

"I was born in Bakersfield, California, and I moved to Cozad, Nebraska, when I was 10 years old to live with my dad. He was living in Cozad because he divorced my stepmom when I was four years old. I missed my dad, and nobody told me that my dad moved until about I was ... two years later, so I was like six. My mom told me he left. I was a little mad at him, and didn't know why he left, because I was five years old. When I came to Cozad, Nebraska I was 10 years old.

I was really happy, in a way, to come to Cozad because I hadn't seen my dad in six years, but I knew I was also going to miss my mom and my brother. We arrived and the first thing we did next morning was to go to school, and sign in. I like living in Cozad. It was a little cold though. I also like the people here, because they are friendly. The first persons I met was my teachers and some of my friends I hang out with today. Things are good now."
