We have a pool now

Last month I spent some time in Phoenix visiting with some Dream Act kids I photographed the year before. It was hot when I walked into Francisco's new house. He and his family moved since I last saw him. "We have a pool now," he told me with pride.

Francisco isn't as active in the Dream Act community anymore. He recently became a dad. Between that and work, it has taken a lot of his extra time. He did find an affordable route to continue his education. There is a community school in a nearby reservation offering discounted classes. He attended last year and will start another round of classes in the fall.
