Her ex-husband came to Ensenada looking for her and took her back to the city Guerrero. She had problems being there and so after awhile she decided to come back here. One back here in Ensenada, she started a relationship with a new man, who is now Carla’s father. They lived together for 2 years and after that they separated. A few years later she met Aliyas, with who she lives currently. Aliyas is the father of Aliyas (2 years) and Maria (1 year). They have been living together as a happy family for the past 5 years. He works in construction, making 70 dollars a week. That is barely enough for what they need. Monica and Aliyas are really excited to have a home because for the past 5 years they have been moving from one place to another, looking for the cheapest rent. In January, they were able to move onto their own piece of land in a small room. Because of Luis’ income, they are not able to make any expansions in their small home.

They have been together for 8 years and have 3 beautiful children. Beatriz and Benjamin have had a difficult life but they have been working hard to provide a better life for themselves, and especially for their children. In the past they used to live wherever they could, but it was hard on them. They would work and barely earn enough money to survive, making it impossible to have money for rent. Five years ago they had the opportunity to buy a piece of property from someone for only $8,000 pesos (approximately $450 US dollars), so they took it. Within a year, they had the property paid off and with a lot of hard work they had built a “house” with wood scraps, tarps and whatever they could find. Their hope for this land is to give their children a better future and way of life. .

He has to wake up really early though and try to be one of the first on the wait list for work because he does not have a contract with any employer. He has to go and look for work each day. The salary he earns is very little and it does not cover much of their expenses; including having a newborn and making land payments monthly. They live in a small room made of scrap wood, a tarp roof, and dirt floor. That is where they cook and sleep. Bersain sleeps on the floor while Maria Fernanda sleeps in the small bed they have with the baby; there is no room for anything else. Thankfully they have the support of their family. They have been living on their land since deciding to be a family over a year ago. They live under very difficult circumstances and their desire is to be able to have a home that is safe, a home where they do not have to fear what could happen to them. One of the prayers is to have a proper home, and a bed to sleep in.

Family Story:

Reyna was born in Pachuca and went to the United States about 12 years years ago. At the time, her son Andres was just one. Reyna went to the US looking for the father of Andres and found him. While living in the US, she gave birth to Oliver. During this time, Reyna got sick; she had fainting spells and found it difficult to walk. After Oliver was born, her children’s father left them and wanted nothing more to do with them, so she returned to Mexico with the boys. Soon after she started getting headaches and had blurry vision. Reyna saw many doctors but all they told her was that they couldn’t do anything with her right eye and she would soon lose her sight and she did. They told her that they could perform a surgery on her left eye and try to save it. For Reyna this has been very difficult for her. She lives off of the donations from other people. Some pastors help her out with food, and another missionary helps her as well by giving 600 pesos to her each month (about $30 USD). The land was donated to her by a man after he saw the conditions she was living in. She has not been able to see the faces of her children since Oliver was 3 and Andres 9. Reyna has no money, cannot see and is alone with her two children.

Family Story:

Elizabeth was born in Oaxaca, but came with her family to Ensenada when she was 8 years old. She met Pedro, her first husband, in high school and they dated for 2 years before Elizabeth got pregnant with their oldest son Angel. Because of the pregnancy, Elizabeth was unable to complete her high school studies and never graduated. They lived with Pedro’s mother for awhile, but Pedro started using drugs when Daniel Armando was about 3 years old. For that reason, Elizabeth and Angel left and moved in with Elizabeth’s mom. Elizabeth was working and taking care of her son alone. Because she was living with her mom, she was able to save money and buy land, which she paid off in 2011. A friend of Elizabeth introduced her to Cesar Daniel and they began dating. They later moved in together and started renting a house in the colonia MonteMar. Shortly after moving in together, Elizabeth got pregnant with Daniel Armando. Throughout the pregnancy, everything was going well until they detected a tumor. The doctor suggested that Elizabeth have an abortion, but Elizabeth did not want for that to happen. She was sent to see a specialist in Guadalajara and the baby was diagnosed with having a lymphangioma, or malformation of the lymphatic system. It was later that Elizabeth heard about the organization in San Diego called Fresh Start. Last year, Daniel started his treatments at the Rady children’s hospital in San Diego with the help of Fresh Start. He will need surgeries, but they do not know what or when or how long it will take. Matias was a surprise and not planned. Elizabeth changed her birth control and got pregnant when Daniel Armando was 8 months old. Elizabeth went to a prenatal check-up about 6 weeks before Matias’ due date and they did not let her go home. Matias was born and was kept in the NICU for months. Matias has since suffered with his health, he is sensitive to bacteria and has issues with his lungs. Elizabeth has fought hard for her children to have good lives; she wants to protect them and make things better for them. Even so, she has not been able to build a home for them, especially not with all the medical bills they have had the last 2 years. Where they currently live, they do not have a proper floor, and all the humidity inside is bad for her children’s health.
In their own words; “We would like our own home so that we can have better living conditions and offer a beautiful home to our children; something they can call their own home. Somewhere the children can play and grow up happy. And of course, to stop paying rent. The house we are renting does not have a normal floor, which means that our son Daniel who is starting to walk cannot walk about freely. Our children get sick often for the humidity inside. It has been difficult for us to do anything better for them and build on our land. We work hard for our children and believe they deserve to grow up in a beautiful place.”

Family Story:

Alejandra is from Oaxaca, but came to Ensenada with her parents 20 years ago. She studied here when she was young and began working in the fields after she graduated. When she was 13 years old she met her ex-husband. Their son was just 4 years old when he abandoned the family. She has since lived with her children and parents. She has helped her parents with work, and in return they are helping her pay for her property. They also helped her build her small house. Her dad has a Home of Hope and he referred her to get one too. She works in her daughter's school selling snacks at recess from 10 am to 10:30 am, working only 2 weeks a month.
