One Miracle at a Time

Rosyleth!

Born with club feet and twisted legs, Rosyleth cannot walk, run, or play like other children. We helped her mother complete the paperwork and Shriners Hospital accepted her! In November, we paid the fees, completed the routine paperwork for a humanitarian visa, and she went to a Shriners hospital in Texas, where she was examined and measured for a custom device that she will wear and doctors believe it may be enough to fix her twisted legs and feet! This could mean no surgery!
A representative from Shriners hospital, Rosyleth, her mom, and Brenda met at the Immigration office and completed another routine application for a humanitarian visa so Rosyleth could travel to Shriners and receive her custom braces but were told that the District Supervisor will not allow her to enter the United States.
We are trying to find a solution to this change in policy. Rosyleth is heartbroken, as are her mother and Brenda.

We met Rosyleth who was born with a club-foot and twisted leg. She is 7 years old and has difficulty walking.

Her mom came to us to ask if we can help her with her daughter's medical problem, she has difficult y walking because she born with her legs folded to the inside and a club foot.

We drove to the ranching community where she lives, just outside of Acuna. The family income is $800 pesos ($41.29 USD). Her father works in a factory.

We reached out to Shriners Hospital and helped the family complete the paperwork and hope she will be accepted. The doctors in Mexico told us the surgery is complicated and requires a specialist.

Rosyleth at the hospital in Laredo, Texas

Rosyleth was accepted by Shriners Hospital in Laredo, Texas. Her mother was overjoyed! After tests and evaluations the doctors had wonderful news. They believe that her legs and foot might be repaired without surgery! They created a special custom leg brace that she will wear until February and it is hoped that this will solve her medical condition. If not, surgery is possible.

At her next appointment we hope the brace will be ready.

We met the Shriners representative at the border, but a change in policy resulted in her not being allowed to cross and go to the hospital

We hope to have a meeting with the Port Director next month. A change in policy affects the many children from Mexico that Shriners is willing to help.

Rosyleth and her mother are so very sad and disappointed.

A representative from Shriners Hospital and from Paper Houses Across the Border met with the Port Director and explain our situation. The Director said that under the circumstances, she sees no reason that would prevent Rosyleth and her mother from entering Texas to receive treatment at Shriners. Her next appointment is February 6th!
