Without a doubt we are sad because of Max's deportation. But I want to thank each of you for all the hard work you have done on our behalf. Thank you for supporting my family. So many of you, without knowing us, have done everything within your power to avoid Max's deportation.
Thank you for all your efforts-- for the calls, the letters, the signatures, the prayers, the songs, the caring thoughts lifted on our behalf.
Even though they've deported Max, we've come to know a community that is united, that can raise a great voice when we witness injustice. We must keep moving forward and see what God has next for us.
I am so grateful for all of your support.
Trusting in God,
for the children, too- Anthony, Edna, Angela, and Aileen
Bring Max Back!
