Summary, etc.:
"From a mother whose children were taken from her at the U.S. border by the American government in 2018 and another mother who helped reunite the family, a crucial, searing story about the immigration odyssey, family separation and reunification, and the power of individuals to band together to overcome even the most cruel and unjust circumstances"-- Provided by publisher.
When Pablo Cruz made the decision to seek asylum in the United States with her children, she had no choice: violence from gangs, from crime, from spiraling chaos was making daily life hell. After a brutal journey Rosy and her two little boys arrived at the Arizona border. Almost immediately they were seized and forcibly separated by government officials under the Department of Homeland Security's new 'zero tolerance' policy. Here Pablo Cruz tells her story, aided by Julie Schwietert Collazo, founder of Immigrant Families Together, the grassroots organization that reunites mothers and children. Their book is a paean to the unbreakable will of people united by true love, a sense of justice, and hope for a better future. -- adapted from jacket.
