Judy Krassowski | Derry, N.H.

This is typical - we are a family in transition and this is our living room. Almost four years after having to sell our home, we continue to live in and out of boxes as my sons move in and back from college.

This photo best represents our building, where there are a number of families who had to sell or have lost their homes and whose high-school or college aged children can't afford places on their own yet. The families in our building meet when some visiting stranger knocks into a fire alarm, bringing us all out into the night - we're always surprised at how many of us there are, and how many grown children are living with their parents.
