Every person goes through facing life challenges that occur normally, such as the developmental challenges of a birth of a child, a child’s first day of school, falling in love, marriage, divorce, parenting, work relationships, aging, and retirement, etc. Other challenges can be unpredictable, such as accidents and sicknesses. These challenges may increase remarkably if you are an immigrant in a new country.
