One of the things I brought from home was my sister’s artwork. This one says, ‘God Bless Our Home’ in Armenian. Although we were born and raised in Syria, my grandparents were Armenians from Turkey who were forced to leave the country in the time of the Armenian genocide of 1915. They began a new life in Syria, and everything was very good until the last 5 years.
They were refugees and now we are refugees too. It is very hard.

Wishing you and your family every happiness and good fortune from here on xx
It always makes me sad when I think of any refugees, but when I think of my fellow Armenians going through this again in such a short time, it breaks my heart. I hope Australia becomes your forever home, and that you, your children and grandchildren build a wonderful life together x
That is beautiful I hope one day you and your sister will be reunited. I’m a proud Armenian but I am a happy Australian. Australia has given me so much and I can only hope it will make you and your family as happy as it makes me and my family. Remember your past but live for the future.
Welcome and good luck.
I cry every time I read these stories. Every time.
It’s unimaginable from the comfort and security my home, yet these folk were sitting in the comfort and security of their own homes not that long ago.
Shoghig, I wish you a peaceful journey for your future in Australia. Most welcome❤️
