An orphanage in Agua Prieta, Mexico takes care of children whose parents have perished while they attempted to cross into the United States. The parents sometimes expire from the desert heat and give the last of the water to the children. Other times, families are separated when they encounter the Border Patrol and the group the children are traveling with scatter.
Lorena and Evan Rios watch their son Sergio, 7, play during a visitation day. The Rios family has been separated because of parental drug use. Lorena holds her youngest son, Nathanaiel. Another orphan, Raymundo Ávila, watches.
