One Year Later

It will be one year tomorrow (June 29) that we were joined together in a common purpose, dear friends of Rosario. Family, friends, acquaintances and even strangers around the country and around the world united their prayers with those of Rosario’s LA family as they kept their vigil at her bedside.

It was a dark time for Rosario, for our family and for her LA family, but your prayers sustained all of us. We knew we could count on you, Rosario’s Prayer Warriors, during those countless moments when we were so overwhelmed, shocked and numb that we lacked the energy to pray ourselves. We never would have survived without your generous love and support. Your prayers gave us hope and opened our eyes to the miracles that were happening daily.

One year later, Rosario is doing quite well, all things considered. She was originally told that it would take about a year for a full recovery. Over the past few months, we realized the doctors were referring to recovery time for surgery only. Their time frame didn’t include healing from the physical trauma of being shot, not to mention the mental and emotional trauma. She still had quite a ways to go, but is grateful for how far she has come.

The days and weeks preceding the first anniversary have not been easy for Rosario. She asks for your continued prayers in the coming days.

God bless you, and thank you for walking with us on our journey of the past year.
