Pray for the angels

In the last month two incredible cases have stunned the Hispanic community. It’s the death of two children and the main suspects for their departures are their own mothers. I was not there, so I don’t know the facts and this is not about making accusations. I just can even fathom how this can happen. My heart is grieved with these stories.

One of these cases is Lorenzo Gonzalez Cacho from my beloved Puerto Rico. This 8 yr old boy went to bed and was found by his sister in a pool of blood. The autopsy shows that he had had wounds in his head from a blunt object and a cut on an eyebrow. He was not taken to medical care until an hour and a half after his discovery; even when the nearest Urgent Care facility was only five minutes away and 911 was never called.

The other case is Paulette Gebara Farah from Mexico. This 4yr old girl had multiple disabilities. She was unable to speak or walk. She needed constant care 24 hrs to the point where she had a few nannies to care for her in addition to her family. This girl allegedly disappeared from her room. In this case the parents went to the authorities and the press to report her disappearance. A few days later, the girl was found stuffed under the own bed in a plastic bag. Her autopsy revealed that she was asphyxiated.

My purpose with this post is not to judge the events that these to little angels endured. Yes, these are horrific crimes. I pray that those responsible for such horrors be brought to justice. I just want urge all to pray for our children. As part of the body of Christ, all of them are ours, regardless of age, gender or race. Let’s pray for their safety and protection.

 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:10 NIV)

    Dear Naty Matos: I had fallow the case about the 4 year old Mexican girl Paullet gevara Farah. It seems that you don’t know this story that well. This little girl wasn’t found stuffed under her bed in a plastic bag, she was found a week later on a space between the mattress ans the footboard of her bed and was covered by her blankets and the body wasn decomposed. At the end they said that the father didnt drop her off with her older sister. they said that her mother lied for her husband and that one of the nannies got paid to lied. But who knows what is really the truth, because people don’t get the real information before they can post something. Google this story for better information. Everybody has their own opinion about this case. I would think that the responsible of her death is her own father, but he had people that helped him. This is a very sad story. I hope that the Mexican authorities do their jobs, not just pick somebody responsible only because they want or because they can.
