Family Ties

The Photo Album

Personal photos from each family are bittersweet reminders.

A rare shot of Maria's whole family : (left to right) Conception, Maria (with older daughter on her shoulders), father Nicolas, son Julio, sister Elizabeth, and brother Hector (kneeling). Elizabeth went with her parents when they returned to Mexico, and Hector joined them soon after. Maria stayed - she wants her children, U.S. citizens, to be able to complete school, saying "I want my kids to be better than me."
