Juan and Diego’s Story

by: Teresa at Catholic Community Services of Southern Arizona

Juan and Diego are migrants from Honduras. As Diego has palsy and is unable to walk or speak, Juan carried his young son over 1500 miles to the US. 

Diego has been seen by an occupational therapist in Tucson, who determined that he’s a very intelligent and curious little boy–as his dad already knew. They seem to have a language of their own, and it is amazing to witness a father’s love for his child, for whom he would do anything. Juan and Diego are reuniting with family in Atlanta, where they hope to continue getting the support they need.
