Travel along with Patrick and Julie as they venture to central Mexico to meet up with their son. Watch as they are introduced to their daughter-in-law and grand daughter for the first time. Embark on the adventure as they help the young family move out of a ruined apartment into a new house in the mountains. Feel the joy turn into heartache as Patrick and Julie build relationships, but then have to return to the United States without their family. Pray along with them as they ask God to help their daughter-in-law with the visa process, so the family can once again be re-united.
