Family Story:

Romelia was born and raised in Chiapas. When she was fourteen years old she had her first child with her first husband. Her first husband was physically abusive towards her and they eventually got a divorce due to the domestic violence. She then moved to Ensenada when she was sixteen years old. She met Rogelio´s father when Elizer was four years old. After ending that relationship she met someone else and became pregnant with Alexa. All of the relationships have ended due to domestic violence and a lack of responsibility from the men. Romelia´s parents had land in Ensenada but had to return to Chiapas so they gave the land to their son. When they returned to Ensenada their son didn’t want them to live with him anymore so Romelia had to take them with her to her house. Romelia’s father doesn´t work because he cares for his wife who suffers from an embolism and hypertensive diabetes. Along with all these problems their eldest son began using drugs. He went to rehab and got out this past July and now works for a taco stand.
