When they separated, Mary Adelina's father gave her the plot of land where they are now living. The boys' father does not give child support.

The boys love spending time with their father and see him every two weeks and stay with him overnight. Their father lives in a rehab center and Mary Adelina lets them go with him as their grandmother on the father's side takes care of them when they are with him.

The boys are in school full-time starting their day at 8am and finishing at 4pm, and on Saturdays, their grandparents (on the father's side) take care of them. 

Mary Adelina works as a secretary in a school office earning $51 USD a week. She also goes to University, Monday through Thursday in the evenings and is studying to be licensed in Sciences of Education.

Her family does not actually help with supporting them as they had some problems and are a bit distant at the moment as they wanted to be in authority over her children.

In the beginning they were living on some property someone lent to them, but later they decided to buy their own property and move there. They built a small room with wood scraps and a tarp. They have no electricity, water or drainage. Only Jesús goes to school, as they don’t have the resources for all their children to go to school. The older kids also lack some of their basic documents, so it’s hard for them to find a job. Esteban’s mother also lives with them, as her husband died and now they take care of her.

Both of them with Leovigildo's parents, went to Cinthia's parents home, to ask if they could move in together. They then moved in with Leovigildo's parents. After in June 2017 they found a piece of property close by and built a little room there, but the room is made of wood scraps and doesn't have much to build on, that's why they came to ask for help from Homes of Hope.

Leovigildo is from Oaxaca and came to Ensenada with his family when he was two years old. He works with vegetables, sorting the corn. It's a temporary job and there are weeks with where he works every day, but right now is a season where he doesn't know if he'll have work the following day. His weekly salary is $44 USD.

February 14th of this year, they got married and are very excited for the opportunity to receive a home. When their situation is more stable, Cinthia is thinking about having more children, but because the little room where they live, lets in the cold as well as water when it rains, it's a little complicated.

In the future, both of them want to finish their high school and continue studying. As they haven't finished their schooling, they haven't had many opportunities to find better jobs. But for now, they need to take care of their son and provide for his future. Receiving a home is the first step to a better future.

They moved in with Israel's mother but soon decided to rent their own place. They were paying quite a bit for rent, so they felt it would just be better to buy their own piece of land. There was an opportunity to buy one, but the owner wanted them to pay for it in one payment, so they looked for a way to do that and Obdulia's father lent them the money to pay for it. 

Obdulia's mother let them live in a little room of her's so they could pay off the property, and it is now paid off.

They moved to their property and made a little room with wood and tarp. 

They have a 4 month old baby who's name is Alberto. They were unable to get pregnant for awhile, so when Obdulia got pregnant it was the best thing to have ever happened to them! Jose Alberto is a miracle from God!

Samuel works in a factory and earns $1,017 pesos (Around 54 USD) per week. Veronica stopped working while their kids were on summer vacation, so they were not alone at home. Now that their kids are going back to school, she will go back to work. She works cleaning houses.

 

Right now they are taking care of two of their nephews, Yulemny who is 15 years old and Emir who is 4. They will be taking care of them for around 6 months. They all are living in their small wood and tarp room.

 

Their dream is to have a Homes of Hope home where their children and nephews can be safe and more comfortable.

Shortly after she met Alan and they were able to rent a place for 4 years. They have just recently started making the payments on their new lot.

Ana wants to have her own home, that no one can kick her out of.

FAMILY STORY:

Felipe is 36 years old and is from Oaxaca. Rosalba is 41 and is from Mexico City. They have two children, Karina who is 14 years old and is in 8th grade, and Dilan Adrian who is 6 years old and is in 1st grade.

 

Felipe and Rosalba have been together for 15 years. Felipe works packing flowers and he earns $1,200 pesos per week (Around $64 USD). Rosalba doesn’t work, she stays at home taking care of her children. They rented for most of the time they have been together, but two years ago they were able to get a piece of land and made a small room with wood scraps and tarp.

 

Felipe has been working hard, but in his condition, it is impossible for him to improve his family situation. They want to receive a Home Of Hope house to be able to provide for their children a safer, more comfortable place to live. A place where the cold winds or rain is not a threat anymore.
