Hello. My parents brought me to the states when I was very young and to this date I don't have my papers. I would like to know how I can become a permanent resident and what my options are? I applied for a green card through the green card lottery, but have not heard back yet. I find out October 1st. I am an adult and feel very limited with what I can do with my life because of not having papers. I am in need of advice on what to do. Thanks.
