Silvia’s story takes us back to her memories of when she left for the United States at the age of 22. She narrates that the motivation of her migration was to seek the American dream, a better life for her family; she left two of her children in Mexico and went to work as a domestic worker in California. She lived for almost five years, had 3 more children, and then in an episode of domestic violence that her partner committed against her, an accident took place that landed her in jail. Without family or legal help she was convicted and separated from her children. After 20 years, she was released from prison, deported to Tijuana and supported by a Christian community that has taught her that she can have a second chance to continue in Mexico.
