El Puente was with me in my hour of need. I was six months pregnant and my husband was picked up, put in jail and deported. I was having complications with my pregnancy, unable to work, and now I would lose my apartment. I went to the Sisters for help. They guided me to make a plan to prepare for the birth of my child. Eventually I found a family to live with until my baby was born. My son arrived six weeks early and needed to stay in a neo-natal unit. I stayed at a Ronald McDonald house, but the Sisters of El Puente visited me, brought me clothes for the baby, and supported me in so many ways. The hospital was 35 miles from my home. Since we've been home from the hospital I've needed to take the baby to the ER three times. The Sisters have been by my side to help each time, even during the night. I'll be forever grateful to El Puente.
