Hey, my name is Katie, and this is my story. My whole life is full of prayers and faith, that’s something me and my family treasure very much. Let me introduce you to the man who gave life to my mother but also gave us hope for a better life. My grandfather Manuel had to go through so many terrifying moments to get here, to the place were all your dreams come true. My grandfather always has said, no matter where you go, no matter where you are, have faith in your “señora because she’s your mother and she will never let nothing bad happened to you. Our lady Guadalupe means so much to us, words can't describe the love I have for her. I treasure my necklace very much because it was a gift from my grandfather and so he said, “Tu nunca estas sola”
