Social History

 Jake is a 27-year-old male and is the only child his maternal grandmother currently resides with. His parents divorced when he was seven years old, and Jake decided to move with his father to Arizona. However, Jakes’ father’s lawlessness put him at a risk of arrest. He decided to go to exile accompanied by his eleven-year-old son. Jake moved along with his father, irrespective of his father’s exceedingly abusive behavior towards him. They stayed in exile for five years, a period of which Jake never attended school. During these five years, fears of Jake's arrest prevailed, and since his father manipulated him, he never contacted his mother. During his teen years, Jake did not have stable life. This is mainly because he lived in many different places and they were not financially stable. It was after his father’s arrest that Jake reunited with his mother.
