Family Story:

Noe was a single father with a 5 year old daughter, Noemi, and they lived in Mexicali. Mirelli, also from Mexicali, met Noe when she was 16 years old, and they started dating. Mirelli's family didn't accept the relationship and they kicked her out, so she moved in with Noe and his mother. They lived there for a year and a half, but they had many problems there between the two families. Noe's mother took care of Noemi while Noe and Mirelli made the move to Ensenada. Obviously, they went back to Mexicali for their daughter, but they have been in Ensenada ever since, living with Noe's mother. There have been many disagreements and fights amongst them due to the fact that they are living with the mother-in-law. As a family, they want to be able to live in peace and separate themselves some from the issues that they have had to deal with over the years. After a long struggle, they were able to find a piece of land which theybought on credit. They are currently living on their land in a small trailer. Inside the trailer are 2 beds and their kitchen has to be setup outside as there is no room in the trailer for all of them and their 4 children. Noe is a driver of a pipe that delivers water to different neighborhoods, while Mirella is a stay at home mom. Their desire is to have a home for their children. The trailer is insufficient for all of them and it has been hard on Noe with his small salary to be able to provide something better since they moved out of his mother's home.
