Adan is originally from the state of Oaxaca. His father died when he was very young, and his family decided to leave the state in search of work and a better life. They came to Ensenada, and stayed. Adan started working when he was just 9 years old. Adan was 24 when he met his wife Pilaer through her sister who was good friends with Adan. Adan and Pilar dated for 3 months before moving in together and starting their life; 2 years later they had their son. At the time, they were living in San Quintin, south of Ensenada. When their son Emanuel was 1, they decided to move back to Ensenada, to be closer to their family. When they got back to Ensenada, they lived with Adan’s mother for 2 months until a friend of Adan’s had lent them a house close to the fields while they looked for a place to live and a job. After 4 months, Adan’s grandpa said they could live on land that he had. They lived there for years before having problems with the legality of the land and being forced to leave. At this point, Adan was desperate for a place, and that is when his brother said he had land with an old house on it that he would sell them cheap. Adan and his family have been there for 4 months now in the old house but they would like to have something better for their children’s well-being.
