The story of Adolfo Alvarado, he immigrated from Mexico to the United States looking for a better life. This is the story of Adolfo Alvarado.

Adolfo Alvarado is 63 years old and suffers of cancer. He has black hair and brown eyes. He has eight kids, five are men and four are women. In the 1980s he immigrated to the United States. To get a better job and take care of eight kids. Although he had many jobs in the United States, on of his first job was to put up fences.

Adolfo is very charismatic man and doesn’t let anything hurt him. Immigrating to the United States wasn’t as simple as it sounds. He had many challenges. For example he didn’t have a job for some time.

Mr.Alvarado’s story doesn't only have one character. It has many, his children and wife. It would have been hard for the children not to have a dad at their side for many times. Even though Mr.Alvarado was working and getting very little money, and even now he would like to go back in time and spend more time with them.
