This chapter discusses Maggie Segura who talked about what happened in the nine years since the authors last saw her, for the George magazine assignment in 2000. It had been a rough time for her, both emotionally and financially. Maggie was married in 2001, and she had changed her last name to Fonseca. She was once again a single mother. Now, at age thirty-three, Maggie was rebuilding her life. Foremost was the well-being of her daughters. Maggie's Habitat for Humanity house off Montopolis Drive in Austin, Texas, where the family still lived, had a feeling of warmth and pride. The home was tidy and filled with simple possessions. There was fresh paint on the walls, the kitchen had a new tile floor, and the lawn was nicely mowed.
