IN MEMOIR  FINDING HOME,  MOTHER TELLS  STORY OF SON,
A PROMISING YOUNG ATHLETE TAKEN BEFORE HIS TIME 

ST. LOUIS, MO — Finding Home:  A Memoir of a Mother’s Undying Love and an Unknown Secret, is a mother’s letter to a remarkable son who left her too soon.  It is the true story of Ramiro “Toti” Mendez, an All-American college baseball player who starred at Florida International University and Miami’s Westminster Christian High School.

This honest memoir is also about untold secrets.  Maruchi Mendez never had the chance to explain to Toti about his birth.  Toti was born in Asturias, Spain, and illegally adopted by Maruchi and her husband Ramiro, who brought him into the United States.

“How much is the life of a college athlete worth?”  Mendez asks.  “Who is watching out for them?”  Every year, the college scouting system monitors performance, speed, and GPA’s but it fails to do the same when it comes to their health.  Meanwhile, athletes continue to drop dead in tracks and fields by the hundreds across the country.  The strides Mendez has achieved in her son’s name are marked by memories and tears.  But they reinforce a mother’s love each day and her resolve to tell his story to the world.

Maruchi Mendez lives with her family in Miami, Florida, and is a co-founder of JunTos Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help young patients and their families who fall victim to terminal or life-threatening illnesses.

Congratulations on this accomplishment Maruchi. You more than deserve it. I trust these steps taken in the creation of your book will catapult you to reach and acquire yet other goals that I know you’ve set out to accomplish.
