At the end of 2016, my wife and I came to Los Angeles, the largest city on the west coast of the United States. We entered the center for baby born. Why do you want to come to the United States to have children? The reason may be different for everyone. More and more middle-class Chinese mainland people are not satisfied with the status and everything they have at the moment after becoming increasingly prosperous.
They have no choice but to "jump" to another world, start a new life and work again, or start a new rush life. The contemporary “Xu Xiake” are different from those of Chinese laborers. They are different from Hong Kong and Taiwanese immigrants of that year and they are not the same as the foreign students of that year. They have already had a high-quality life and enviable work in China. They just want to change, the life, environment, anxiety, anxiety and etc. everything seems to be the object of change. I walk around in the United States. I don't know if one day I will choose to change if there may be the life I want here.
