Meet our Founder
God Sees Your Tears was birthed through the loss of my son, Abel Joel Salazar Jr, whom was murdered on September 29, 2016. The anguish I felt when the detectives arrived at my home and asked me if I knew Abel Salazar and how I was related to him. My heart was beating so fast as the officer spoke and I heard the words, "your son is deceased Ma'am". I remember falling, screaming, the room was spinning and I couldn't breathe. My daughters are coming into the room as I'm in my own shattered world. People are coming into my house and all I can do is scream and scream in disbelief. My world at that very moment was caving in. I didn't know who I was anymore. I didn't want to live without Abel. I had given up completely in every way possible. The only thing I had left in me was my faith and I had given up on that too. Grief over the loss of
a child is the most difficult journey any parent has to walk, and it is the most painful and unexplainable to anyone who has never lost a child. They think we should "get over it" or that we should "stop acting like such cry babies" or that we should "move on and forget about it." Oh yeah, I have heard it all.
No, and, no. You never get over losing a child. You never stop missing them and shedding tears. There is no moving on and forgetting about it. They are our babies, our life blood, our hearts and we will love them and miss them for as long as we continue to breathe.
What I have learned is that some how we adjust to this new normal. For us of just taking one breath at a time, one step at a time, one moment at a time and one day at a time. Anything can make us cry, anywhere, at any given moment. The best thing for us to do, is just go ahead and cry. Who cares what someone else thinks? I do not, and you should not either.
We lose the most precious gift we have gotten in our lives, the precious gift of brining another life into this world. When we lose them, we are lost too. We are no longer the same person. We no longer live the same life as we lived before they died.
I sincerely hope that my words help someone. I am sending every single one of you prayers for comfort, courage and strength you need to travel this difficult journey. You are not alone and you are loved. We need each other because we understand one another.
Lord hold us in your arms.
I was at a point in my life where I didn't desire to live. My heartache was too much to bare. I would sit on the sofa and think about how much I wanted to end my life. In the midst of the darkest time of my life, the Lord asked me to start God Sees Your Tears. I couldn't understand why the Lord would ask such a thing of me. I argued with God in tears and agony and said, "I have nothing to give to anyone. Everything that existed in me, is dead." The Lord said, "I need you my daughter to pour out unto women and I will pour unto you. "You will be who I use to reach other women who are broken and without hope. In the midst of darkness and chaos, my glory will be revealed. It was through His amazing grace that the Lord saved me. I cried out unto the Lord to help me see the purpose behind His plan. To provide the grace, strength and faith, I needed to take the next step in reaching my destination. As I seek your face Lord, guide me so that I may walk and not faint.
