Photographer Lisette Poole chronicled the journey of two Cuban women, Marta and Liset, during their 8,000 mile migration to the US. The women reached the US before the end of the "Wet Foot, Dry Foot" policy, which granted asylum to any Cuban immigrant that reached the United States.

Marta, 52, says goodbye to her friend Sunamy as she holds her grandson. The story behind the pictures can be found here.
