Bio

Rosita lives with her dad, two older siblings, and numerous members of her extended family in her grandmother's home. Rosita's mother abandoned her when she was just a baby. Rosita has a really strained relationship with her family. She is often neglected and talked down to within her home. However, she has a very close relationship with her older brother and one of her aunts. Rosita is an incredible young woman! She has a heart for the Lord and to serve and love others. She is also very intelligent and has the potential to be an excellent student. When Rosita was younger, she was often in and out of school due to her family's finances. Because of this, she is behind in school. Rosita is currently in her 2nd year of secondary school (US equivalent of 8th grade). Last year she was honored as one of the top students in her class. In her free time, Rosita loves to play softball and serve at the church. She teaches the 2-5 year old Sunday school class and loves to work with children! During the summer of 2012, she began taking massage therapy classes offered at New Song and has developed a love for massage. She is especially interested in using massage as a means to help people with health problems (stroke recovery, arthritis, etc.). Once she finishes high school, she would really like to find a massage school in Nicaragua to study farther.

November 2015

Rosita had an accident in the middle of November. She was coaching the oldest team’s baseball practice, and a batted ball in the temple of her head hit her. She had an emergency CAT scan in another city that showed a small amount of inflammation to the brain. After meeting with a neurologist, she was told that she will not have any lasting effects of this accident but her head will hurt for a while. She was given pain medicine, which has been very helpful. Rosita was on strict bed rest for the last two weeks of school. Her teachers and principal were very understanding. Even though Rosita missed the last part of the year, she passed for the year and will go into her last year of high school next year. This is a huge thing for her and she is looking forward to it. It is a blessing that she has the next two months off of school to focus on getting better. Rosita’s head still hurts immensely sometimes especially when she uses a lot of energy. She has to be aware of what she can do and what she can’t do and has cut back on a lot of things. However, she is getting better and we know she will feel better soon. Her CAT scan did show that she has some small cysts on her brain unrelated to the accident. They will need to be monitored to makes sure they aren’t growing. She will go back for another CAT scan in a year. Please be praying for Rosita during this time and for a quick recovery.
