Family Story:

Angel and Yashira met at their place of employment. Angel had been thinking and praying about her and felt that he was supposed to ask her out to dinner. After she said yes, they started a relationship and dated for 9 months before they decided to take their relationship to the next step and move in together. They moved into a house that Yashira's aunt let them stay in. They lived there for two years and during those two years, they had many struggles with that aunt. They decided to buy a piece of land on credit and be able to have their own home for their daughter Genesis to grow up in. They now have 2 daughters. Genesis is a year and a half, and Sinahi is just 6 months old. On their land they built a small room with some recycled wood and black plastic. They have to go with their neighbor in order to shower and use the restroom. With the income that Angel receives, he uses it to pay off the land, buy diapers and wipes, formula and cover their personal expenses with a family of two small children.
