"Each of these women were chosen based on her contributions to not only her family but to her community. Profiling these extraordinary moms further reinforces Selecciones' commitment to providing inspirational content on everyday people making a difference in the world," says editorial director, Genevieve Fernandez.

Following are highlights of the five 2009 Selecciones Supermamas:

Guiltless Mother: Lucero EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW pg. 46

The popular Mexican singer and actress talks exclusively to Selecciones about her role in one of the nation's most watched show Manana es para siempre, always yearning for motherhood and how she juggles her career and parenting. Lucero also shares that her mother's love and support set a positive example for her and has influenced the way Lucero raises her own children. For over ten years, Lucero has been committed to championing Mexico's poor children by actively supporting the Teleton, which helps raise funds to help Mexico's poor children. A mantra she shares with her children: "If everybody gives a little something, people's lives can really change," says Lucero.

TEST of Faith: Laura Posada pg. 60

While you may find Laura Posada on the sidelines cheering for her husband, Yankees catcher, Jorge, many call the mother of two the real champion. Shortly after Jorge Luis, their first child, was born in 1999, he was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, a condition that prematurely hardened his skull. Laura Posada talks to Selecciones about going through a period of depression and anxiety as her son underwent eight grueling surgeries that required doctors to piece his skull together -- and how she learned to turn her experience into an endeavor that helps families through the emotional and financial stress that comes with having a diagnosed child. She spends many hours working on the Jorge Posada Foundation's efforts, from fundraising to taking calls from families any time of the day.

A Giving Hand : Isabel Garcia pg. 64

When her daughter Daniela was born with cerebral palsy, Isabel Garcia moved the earth and heavens to get the help she needed. She helped organize a group called Parent to Parent of Miami, which now helps over 5,000 families each year get disabled children matched with the right academic program. "I ended up getting so much in return. I got hooked. I knew this was what I wanted to do," says Garcia.

The Art of Living: Olivia Alvarez pg. 53

Extreme poverty, domestic violence and two breast cancer surgeries have not been enough to stop Mexican-born Olivia Alvarez from becoming a lawyer, obtaining a Master's degree in education from the University of Colorado and raising three kids alone after she lost her husband in an accident. Alvarez infuses that energy in everything she does, including teaching Mexican folk dances to her elementary students in Longmont, Colorado and organizing quinceaneras parties to keep Mexican traditions alive for free. Alvarez was nominated by her daughter Stephanie, and is the first Super Mom chosen from reader entries.

No Truce: Norma y Maria Luisa Andrade pg. 57

Norma Andrade had to quickly gain her composure after Lilia, her 18-year-old daughter, was found dead in 2001. The tragedy left Lilia's two children motherless, but Norma, a schoolteacher, is both their grandmother and a second mother to them. Since then, Norma and her other daughter, Maria Luisa Andrade, have traveled the globe to bring international attention to the violence against women in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico -- and the corruption that allows killers to walk free. They've also started a support group to help families affected by the violence to pull through.
