Estrella is 1 of 5 children of single Mother Rubidalia. Rubidalia was suddenly left by her husband a year ago, after 27 years of marriage. Since her husband left, he has not had any contact with the family and doesn't support them at all financially. Rubi has struggled to provide for her children's needs on her own, however, and has even sometimes lacked food in their home in the past. Rubi is a very hard working woman, she is a talented seamstress and works out of her rental home. Now that the children are at CDL, she is able to accomplish more during the day and is able to finish the sewing projects that are ordered from her. She does all the sewing for the House of Lights Goods store including blankets, scarves and pillows!
