Nicol Ozbic heard from her son almost every week. He was living in Canada, far away from her, but he called every week. She said to him “You can go to Canada to learn English, but only if I hear from you every week. I don’t want you to become a stranger.” She enjoyed his calls. For a while she heard all about his new life in Canada. It sounded very interesting and fun, but she knew he was just excited about living in a new place. Then, all she heard about were his problems and complaints about life. He was getting used to Canada.
