The Book of Rosy: A Mother's Story of Separation at the Border by Rosayra Pablo Cruz
A searing tale of the human lives behind the Trump administration-made immigration crisis, written by two remarkable mothers--a Central American woman whose children were taken from her by the United States government at the southern border, and the American who helped reunite the family--and offers a timely and urgent look at a migrant experience, family separation and reunification, and the power of individuals banding together to overcome even the cruelest and most unjust circumstances. When Rosayra Pablo Cruz made the wrenching decision to seek asylum in America with two of her children, five-year-old Fernando, and fifteen-year-old Yordy, she knew the journey would be incredibly difficult, dangerous, and potentially deadly. But violence had made life in Guatemala untenable; Rosy knew her family's only chance to survive was to go north. After surviving a perilous journey that left them dehydrated, starved, and exhausted, Rosy, Fernando, and Yordy crossed into Arizona, together. Almost immediately, mother and children were forcibly separated by government officials under the Department of Homeland Security's "zero tolerance" policy. In The Book of Rosy, Rosy and Julie Schwietert Collazo, founder of Immigrant Families Together, tell Rosy's story, exposing the cruel conditions of the detention facilities, the unbearable anxiety of having her children ripped away, and the faith and love that helped her through the darkest time. An unflinching look at the human cost of inhumane policies, and the unbreakable bonds of family, faith, and community, The Book of Rosy offers a much-needed glimpse into the human side of a polarizing issue that continues to grip our nation's politics.
Raising Rudy: A Seemingly Insignificant Guatemalan Boy by Sally Duck Megginson
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Rudy was born in 2003, in the slums of Guatemala City, to a woman that didn't want or love him. She discarded him at birth. He was tossed from place to place and physically abused by a bitter stepmother. When Rudy was 7-years-old, a glimmer of hope began shining into his bleak life. A Guatemalan woman, an American missionary serving in Guatemala, and an American pastor and his wife, step by step, began changing this young boy's life. For over six years, things only got better and better for little Rudy. He traveled, and everywhere he went, people fell in love with him. In the USA, in Guatemala, and in Costa Rica. Then tragedy struck. You won't want to put this book down as you read the details of Rudy's life, learning to fish with his grandpa in a remote village, helping his grandma gather firewood, or living with the only white woman in town. You will laugh at Rudy's reaction to his first airplane flight. You will feel the young boy's excitement at getting to live near the beach in Costa Rica, watching monkeys swing through trees, and avoiding iguanas sunbathing on the rocks. You will learn to love Rudy too, like so many others. Yet there will be moments where your heart will break at what he had to endure. This book will not only tell Rudy's unique story but hopefully inspire you to never hesitate in taking a risk on love.
