Her parents never stopped believing that she would be healed.
“I saw God very close … right here,” Cristina’s father, Pepe Moreno, told me, placing his hand a yard away from his body. He and his wife, Maite Alonso, never doubted that God would heal their daughter, for whom the doctors held no hope. Their faith was unshakable: their daughter would be cured, despite the doctors’ prognosis, because “in addition to the doctors, we have God,” they both thought.
Pepe Moreno is originally from Malaga, on the southern coast of Spain, where his mother and relatives live, but Pepe and his family now live in Vilanova del Vallès, about 16 miles north of Barcelona.
