The Raciuc Family lives in Talaiesti Village, near Carpineni. There are three children in the family - a 2-year-old, a 9-year-old, and a 14-year-old. The mother used to drink alcohol, but since she gave birth to her youngest, she has stopped. She also lived in a shelter for mothers in Hincesti prior to moving to Talaiesti. The mother doesn't work anywhere since she stays at home with the youngest child. The father works occasionally in the nearby villages. When the parents aren't home, the oldest child, Tatiana, takes care of the younger children.
