Humans of Downey - Miguel


"I fight for my family. To make sure they are well protected, well cared for, supported, and nurtured. My son was born prematurely at 2lbs 6oz. From day one I had to work hard, because he spent seven weeks in the hospital. It was a terrifying experience to see him born that way. But it was a time of growth for me and my wife. I had to still work. My wife was at the hospital for 20 hours a day. I would work 12 hours a day and then go to the hospital to be with my wife and child. They were very tough times but very interesting times.

"To protect, care for, support, and nurture my wife during this time I prayed for her, came alongside her, bringing her food, taking care of the house, taking care of the finances, and taking care of anything she needed so that she could be there wholeheartedly as much as she needed to be there."
