Letter From the Family: Approximately 2 years ago my husband, sons, and myself moved here to Tijuana. At first we were living with my sister-in-law and didn't pay rent. With the little money that we saved we bought our land. Since then, we have had to pay rent and for the schooling of our two sons and our land payments. Combined with all of our other expenses, it has become too much. That is why we hope you would consider our case. If we had our own house we could stop paying rent and we would be able to continue to pay for our land. We are originally from a small town in Guerrero. There we worked as farmers and humbly had a home. When all of the armed groups and organized crime started we had to leave for the well being of our family. My husband works as a street vendor selling second-hand items. He works from 5am-4 or 5pm and on the weekends when my kids aren't in school, we go help him sell. I don't have a job for now because there is no one to take care of my kids, and even if I found someone to take care of them, I would have to pay for the child care. We have thought about going back to our small town but we always end up saying no because we couldn't return to how things were and leave what we have here. Thank you so much and God bless you all!
