I’m infinitely grateful to the Holy Child of Atocha for delivering us from dying drowning in Rio Bravo when we—my son and I—tried to cross it. The current was dangerously dragging us down, and I prayed to the Child and right away saw a branch. I grabbed it and managed to get us out of the river. We arrived well to our destination, finding a job in the United States. I ordered to make this retablo for receiving the favor.

I wholeheartedly thank the Holy Child of Atocha because last year I joined the dance group Los Chinelos. I always enjoyed going out on the streets with my family and watch them, but then a friend of mine who was in the group invited me to dance with them. I gladly agreed because it’s such a colorful and fun tradition.
