At one time this single mother hung out with gang members, but she wanted a better life and got away from them, got a job, and got an apartment. At the time of this portrait, she was just barely holding her life together, struggling to make rent and provide for her baby girl. Later, I learned she had lost her job and had to give up her apartment.
