Crossing the River
Merry Christmas One & All
He swears he never touched her. She’s pregnant anyway. He chooses to believe her when she says it was by the hand of God. He spares her the ridicule of family and friends by pretending the child is his. She goes along with his plan to cross the border at the Rio Grande but the boy is born in Ciudad Juárez, on Christmas morning. They name him Jesus and pray for the best.
