Andrea lives with her grandparents.

  Andrea's mother abandoned her when she was only two months old, and her grandmother was too poor to buy her milk, Andrea grew up drinking coffee and sugar rather than anything with the vital nutrients the body and brain require to grow and develop properly. Today Andrea is the size of a girl around 6 or 7 years old even though in 2011 she will turn 15. Andrea is often very weak, and as is common in drastically undernourished children she is not doing well at school. She has been drastically malnourished her whole life, and to this day her diet is very lacking in nutrition.

Andrea and her grandparents lost their home to Hurrican Stan in 2005, but were fortunate to receive government housing to replace the house they lost - although it took until 2009 before it was actually complete and they could move in.
