Her mother, Sierra, is a 16-year-old who stopped going toschool after she became pregnant by her on-again, off-again 18-year-old boyfriend, Kyle, whovisits Sierra but shows no interest in Kyla. He frequently becomes annoyed and leaves when Kylaneeds to be fed or have her diapers changed. Sierra’s father was very abusive to both Sierra andher mother as Sierra was growing up. He died 6 months ago because of a knife wound thatoccurred during a fight at a local tavern. He and Sierra’s mother lived together with their fivechildren and when he worked, he worked for a minimum wage that barely fed his family. Kyla’saunts and uncles (Sierra’s three sisters and one brother) keep in contact with their mother andsister but are busy with their own lives and families. Although Sierra participates in Kyla’s care,her mother is the stable caregiver when she is not working.
