Estevan is a trained English teacher but is working nights at a restaurant to make money since he can not get a real job because he is an illegal immigrant. They also have very little possessions in their name compared to how normal families live. This is shown when Estevan and Esperanza are leaving with Taylor to go to a safe house in Oklahoma. “Estevan and Esperanza had one suitcase between them and it was smaller then mine...I had packed for a week, ten days at the outside, and they were packed for the rest of their lives.” (Kingsolver 251).

Even the simplest decisions like “where to eat” or “where should we go” are all difficult questions that I struggle making a decision for. As a child, I saw my aunt as the male figure of the house because she provided for the family and I naturally picked up the same characteristics as her to mold me into a better
