Eliana Yaminah Garcia's life is an answer to prayer. She was born November 2, 1993. Due to complications during her birth she suffered a lack of oxygen to the brain as well as cardiac arrest in the ambulance as she was being transported to another hospital. The physicians did not expect her to survive so family, friends, and church family in New York and New Jersey stayed in prayer.


Eliana survived and throughout her life God gave her family the wisdom to guide and teach Eliana about Jesus our Savior. She attends church and loves to praise Jesus through hymns. She has a good memory.


Eliana was baptized May 13, 2017, and gave her life to Christ. Hector Hernandez, pastor of the Hispanic Church in Soddy Daisy, Tenn., baptized her. Her uncle's, Fabrizio and Gloria Seminario, Pastor Herner Hernandez, and many others have supported her and shared their Christian principles.
