November 21, 2020. Queens, NY.
Elizabeth Medina, 48, who works at a pet store, posed for a portrait outside her home in Sleepy Hollow NY. Elizabeth grew up believing her father was dead.
A year ago, she found a note at the door of her home from his lawyers, telling her that he was incarcerated, very much alive, and trying to reach her. After having lost her mother a decade ago, Medina believed she was an orphan, and the revelation that he had been incarcerated for her entire life was shocking. They have now created a relationship, and he’s shown her the many arts and crafts he’s made for her during his years inside.
