Hace 5 meses fuimos testigos de una historia desgarradora. Jasmin Cervantes-García, una niña de apenas 12 años, llegaba en condición crítica al aeropuerto de Tampa tras sufrir un accidente de auto en México donde perdió a sus padres y abuelos.

Cindy García, tía de la menor, movió cielo y tierra para traerla a la Bahía de Tampa bajo una promesa. “Jasmin va a salir adelante, está en casa y ella va a salir adelante” . Sostuvo.

Y esa promesa se cumplió. Después de 5 largos meses y de tener un pronóstico reservado, Jasmin no solo logró abrir los ojos, su recuperación la llevó de vuelta a su hogar. “Ella no llegó moviéndose, ella no llegó hablando, ella llegó en una cama y eso es todo. A lo que está haciendo ahora, es un milagro de dios y como siempre he dicho ella está aquí por una razón”.
