New Favorite Tumblr: “Meet My Immigrant Mom”

Burmese immigrant mother with her five kids

Launched by the Domestic Workers Alliance, this really sweet Tumblr is filled with photos of immigrant mothers with notes of appreciation written by their children. Meet the mom pictured above:

My mother immigrated from Burma as a seamstress and spent her life sewing and making things from curtains to sofas. She worked 3 jobs all her life and never stopped working from early morning to late into the night. I remember her always sewing downstairs late into the night and never taking vacation or saying no to a job. She also cooked the best Burmese/ Chinese food and would make seven course meals if we had friends over.
