Family Story:

Maria de Jesus was married to Jose her husband of 13 years. During those 13 years together, she, and the kids, suffered from physical abuse. For this reason she decided to leave him before it got worse. They were living at a ranch called Agua Caliente in Ojos Negros. When Maria left Jose, she came to Ensenada to live with one of her sisters. They lived there for a year and a half before moving to a house they lived in while it was on the market to be sold. The house sold and they once again had to go live with Maria's sister. At this time, she met Jesus and they got together. With the help of Jesus, they bought a piece of land on credit and built a place for them to live in; they continue to pay off their land. Jesus doesn't have steady work to provide a stable income for his family and Maria doesn't work as she stays home to care for her children. The children have suffered from internal trauma due to the abuse they received from their biological father and have had to go to therapy sessions with their school psychologist. This has also caused them to fall behind in their school.
