Boy who cried on train to be reunited with mom
Boy who sobbed on a train to the US has reunited with his mom.
The 15-year-old is now going back to school in the city of San Antonio and is going to start his first year at high school on July 11, according to his mother, who spoke to ABC News.
The boy, who has been living with his family since December, was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition known as anaphylactic shock when he was only a toddler.
A hospital in San Antonio had previously advised him to stop going to school, but he insisted on going anyway, and it wasn’t long before he was returning to school.
A source told ABC News that the boy was in the same school district where his classmates were going to be going, so he had no trouble getting in.
But that was when he fell ill.
He got on a plane to the United States and spent two days in a hospital in Texas.
“I didn’t know what to expect, but I was scared.
It was the first time I’d been to the hospital, and the doctor was telling me to go home and sleep,” the mother, Jennifer Rodriguez, told ABC.
The family decided to give the boy a new start and he’s been back at school in San Pedro for the past two days.
He’s not the only one who has found a home with his new family: His older sister, Ana, has also made a home at the family’s house in San Carlos.
But even with all the new friends, the family still hasn’t quite made it home to the family house in Austin.
“I’m still in shock, I still can’t sleep,” Jennifer Rodriguez told ABC affiliate KENS5.
“It’s just hard to understand why they would send me home with this kid.”
She said the family is not expecting to be back until next summer.
“They are not giving me any money,” she said.
The family has been going to different schools in the past, but the new boy has never been able to go to the same schools as his classmates.
“My son’s a different person, he’s a little more shy, but all the same, he loves school and loves being a student,” Jennifer told KENS.
“He has no idea why this has happened to him, and I don’t want to talk about it,” she added.
