A Single Mother Saving Her Son

A Teen Boy from El Salvador

I am a single mother.

I must save my son.

My husband beat me.

I left him.

Already he has made his life

with another person.

We have no support.

The gangs know this.

They threatened us.

The gangs are called:

“The Twins”


We made the decision to seek shelter

In the United States.

A friend of mine lives here.

She will receive us

To save my son

To save me.

We left our country in emergency.

We cannot return.

We have much fear.

From Fear to Freedom
