This chapter discusses the intersecting significance of gender, national origin, citizenship status, and age in forming the back-and-forth migration of transnational family members. The focus of its discussion is children, with the aim of bringing their relationships, presence, and participation with adults more fully into immigration research. The chapter also includes the story of Elian Gonzalez, a 5-year-old Cuban boy who was the focus of a child-custody battle among members of a transnational family. Elian's story highlights the experiences of families whose members maintain relationships, as well as those involving the raising of children, across national borders.

Keywords:   gender, national origin, citizenship status, transnational family, migration, children, immigration research, Elian Gonzalez
