Friday, August 11, 2006





(WOMENSENEWS)--Following Hurricane Katrina, Women's eNews correspondent Juliette Terzieff began to follow the journey of Michelle Castillo, a single mother from New Orleans, as she rebuilt her life and cared for her family. Castillo, her two children, and her ailing father left their devastated city in the wake of the storm and resettled in Orlando, Fla.

Our series followed the family's fortunes over the course of a year, checking in with them to see how they were adjusting to a new life and the problems they were facing in fully recovering from the disaster.

Below are the headlines and links to the series. We hope you will enjoy meeting Michelle Castillo and her family, and gain an insight into the problems they share with the thousands of others who still remain adrift even as the flood waters have receded.
