We gave our daughter a lot of presents over the years. The one that endures is her ability to understand two cultures, two languages.
Her father taught her Spanish. I taught her English.
But it was Lucy’s grandmothers who taught her how to walk in both worlds without fear or judgment.
Lucy grew up in Tucson, Arizona, and had a close relationship with my mother. We began making trips to her father’s childhood home near Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, when she was a toddler.
