Casimiro’s Story

God, Family , Stories

Contributed by: Compassion Canada

Casimiro was once a busy truck driver who rarely saw his six children, but life drastically
changed when his wife of 20 years died in childbirth. Casimiro is now a full-time dad, taking care
of his six children, including his newborn daughter, and operating a taxi business to provide for
his family. Casimiro’s resilience and trust in God is incredible. ⠀

“I’m thankful to the Lord because I wouldn’t have been able to do it on my own. It is God who
did it; it is He who is taking care of my children, not me. I’m here as an instrument to encourage
them in what they have to do. I know that thanks to the Lord they are okay. He has taught me to
be a good father and at the same time a good mother.”
