Yenis crossed jungles, deserts, chaotic cities and lonely towns. Slept on the open air among mud and the endless selvatic rains. Walked kilometers under a relentless sun while holding in arms her loved Diana, a little girl that just recently wasn’t called a baby anymore but was already the oldest of Yenis’ treasures, the other treasure was growing in her womb, getting bigger with each step towards the north while crossing countries and proudly keeping coins as souvenirs.
Yenis and Alexis moved forward, with all the possible determination, as was trying the whole family. The same were doing their nephews Isaac and Alexa with their 8 and 5 years old and sometimes without shoes. The same determination that had Ms Karina Bravo as she crossed thar River that shares her same last name and character.
And with that same determination, but almost without knowing it, they arrived to New York. The little treasure was now a big belly that Yenis and Alexis pampered and cared for while running between shelters for migrants and tried to adapt to the cold, to the bureaucracy to regularize their situation, to jobs and to the attention little Diana and her endless joy and energy deserved. All that while seeing that belly turned one day, by surprise as they didn’t know yet, into another beautiful baby girl with roots in Maracaibo and the indigenous Wayúu community, this time a baby born in New York.
