Family Story:

Petra was born in Tijuana. She had a divorce in her first marriage because of physical abuse. When she came to Ensenada, while she was working in the fields, she met Abelardo. He wanted to move in with her. She did not want to because of the 8 children she was taking care of from her previous children. Abelardo did not mind, and so they rented a house for 5 years until they were able to buy their own land. Petra works packing fish and Abelardo works outside of the grocery stores, carrying people’s groceries for them.
