Juana Ramirez

After Juana’s birth, the hospital kept the infant only telling Maria there was a small problem...

Juana was born on March 16th, 1994 in Mexico. Juana’s mother, Maria, was not aware her unborn child had spinal bifida. Throughout her pregnancy, Maria was told there were no reasons to be concerned and her baby was perfectly healthy.

After Juana’s birth, the hospital kept the infant from her mother, only telling Maria there was a small problem. On her third day of postpartum recovery, Maria begged to see her daughter. It was then that Maria was informed of Juana’s diagnosis, spina bifida, and hospitalized for 2 additional weeks before being released.

Juana’s family has faith that God sent her to them and see her as a blessing in their lives.
