Family Story:

   Zoila and Ubaldo met each other when they were kids back in Oaxaca where they are both from.  Zoila’s family would have to wash their clothes at Ubaldo’s house because there was a drought in the area where they lived. They fell in love and 2 years ago got married and began a family while there in Oaxaca.  They later decided to move to Ensenada because the economy was very bad back where they lived. Ubaldo started working in the fields and his sister offered his family to stay at her place, but after a while they started having problems and had to move out.  They then rented a room but the owner of the room raised the rent every time they had to pay.  Finally, after they both worked hard, they were able to buy a property with monthly payments.  An engineer friend of theirs helped them out with materials for them to build a room.  Every time that friend could visit, he would, and always tried to help out around as much as he could. Candelina, their youngest daughter, started getting really high body temperature and started to have seizures.  They took her to the pediatrician regularly for over 6 months and their engineer friend was always there helping.  But thanks to God Candelina is fine now.
