ABOUT THE FAMILY

Maria and Juan have been together for 24 years. They have three children, all of whom were born in the US. When Juan left the US, Maria stayed behind with the children for a while, but she moved to Peñasco with their two youngest children five years ago. Maria (13) and Pedro (12) are both attending Jr High, where they receive help and accommodations for their learning disabilities. Juan has employment as a security guard and Maria is dedicated to her home and family. They have been paying for their land lot for the past 2 years, and are currently living in a borrowed home. Their desire is to be able to live in their own home on their own land where they will have stability and security for their future.
