Family Story:

Susan was born in Ensenada and grew up on her parent’s land. When she was 15 years old she got pregnany with her daughter Emily. It was a high risk pregnancy and the baby was born prematurely at 8 months. Emily’s father never wanted anything to do with them, but Susan’s mother helped them out. When she was 16 she met Juan and they were married. They went and lived with Juan’s mother. Juan took care of Emily, and together they had two more daughters. After 10 years of marriage they are getting divorced. Juan was unfaithful numerous times, the emotional abuse was affecting her and her daughters, and Susan didn’t want to be in that relationship anymore. She returned to her mother’s house with her 3 girls and her mom gave her a section of their land. That is where Susan wants to build a home for her family. Every day, Susan’s mother takes the girls to school while Susan goes to work cleaning houses. After school, the girls are cared for by Susan’s mother until she is done working. Susan has a set job cleaning 2 houses each week. Susan now wishes to complete her high school because due to her pregnancy with Emily, she was never able to graduate. Susan would like to go on to college in order that she may have a better job to set a good example and provide a better future for her girls.
