Mom: Hermalinda Villa Garcia Children: Mauricia (8), Axel (4), Vianney (1). Hermalinda said she's seen a marked improvement in her children's health since they started taking vitamin A supplements. Her littlest, Vianney, surprises her with an imagination and vocabulary beyond her years. The boys enjoy helping their dad, Manuel, with the livestock and odd jobs around town. Hermalinda said she wants her kids to continue their studies through high school but worries how the family will pay for it. Manuel agrees that building jobs can be hard to come by. But he doesn't fret. "Everything in this life is hard," he said. Hermalinda spoke proudly of his devotion to her and their children. "He has never left me alone," she said.
