Nila is my youngest sister. I am the oldest son, followed by Mark, then Priscila, and finally Nila. One day after the accident, Nila said to me, "Norberto, if you need me, I am here." My mind was foggy; I could not make rational decisions. I must have said, "Come and stay with me for a while." That same week she moved out of her apartment and into my house, where she lives to this day.
During her time with us, Nila has become an important role model for Anahi. We all cried together that first year, almost every day. She hascared for Anahi when I needed to go on trips or attend meetings. She has done grocery shopping, cooked meals, and cleaned up after Anahi.
While others have given financially, prayed, and loved on us, Nila has given almost three years of her life to serve her brother and niece. I thank God for the loving family he has given me, and especially for Nila.
This year, she met Ricardo, a wonderful young man, in Asuncion, Paraguay. They have been dating for a while now and are planning to get married on February 28, 2015. Nila is excited and ready to soon begin a new chapter in her life with Ricardo. I am enjoying these times with Nila as she picks out colors and works on her wedding program. I believe she will be a wonderful wife and mother. Nila tells me that Anahi taught her indirectly about being a mom and loving unconditionally.
I thank God for Nila. I believe God will continue rewarding her for her service to Him and her family.
