She left there because she wanted to protect her two sons from the crime and for the fear they would get taken by the drug cartels. Maribel works at a company where they grow organic vegetables. She doesn't earn much money and therefore doesn't have the resources to build a house and have two kids in school. Jose Emiliano, the youngest son, has a vocabulary problem that's made it difficult to keep up with school, and has fallen behind. Right now Maribel has a small piece of land she's purchased where they live, but would like to have something safe for her kids.

Soon their oldest son was born (he is now six years old) and two years later Jimena was born. Unfortunately to be able to build a safe place for their children has been difficult as the amount they earn, is only enough for their food. Priciliano works in the fields, cutting flowers, and he earns $47 USD weekly, and that is not enough to build a home for them. They are worried about their children as they are often bitten by bugs, and would like to have a safe place for their children.
