Family Story:

Erika has gone through tough times since she was pregnant with her first child at 14 years of age. After the baby was born she got pregnant again then she and her husband got separated.  The second baby was born and because she couldn’t take care of him her aunt took charge of the baby. Erika met Manuel, who after seeing her situation decided to adopt her kids when they got together.  Manuel works in construction while Erika stays back home taking care of their newborn child. They’ve gone through a lot of things but have persisted through all of it with the hope that something better is yet to come for them.
