AURA DELGADO WAS BRUTALLY BEATEN AND LEFT IN A VEGETATIVE STATE BY HER MOTHER ON CHRISTMAS DAY – UPDATED 08.29.2013 – CCA0039

AURA DELGADO WAS BRUTALLY BEATEN AND LEFT IN A VEGETATIVE STATE BY HER MOTHER ON CHRISTMAS DAY

12Christmas is supposed to be a magical time for children.  The lights, music, smells, bright colored wrapping paper, all of that stuff that seems like a fairy tale when you are a young child.  Christmas is a time for celebration and spending time with family.  A child should not be stuck in a hospital bed, fighting for life after having her mother beat her for Christmas.  But that is where little Aura Delgado, 2, was this Christmas, hooked up to various machines after being brutally beaten by her own mother, Cynthia Cecilia Gonzalez, 26.

The extent of Aura’s injuries are horrific.  When the little girl was brought to the Children’s Medical Hospital in Dallas, after her family finished eating and opening presents while the little girl lay struggling for her life, she was found to have very serious injuries. Her injuries included a black eye, a bruised chest, cut gums, a skull fracture, brain bleeds, internal bleeding, a loose tooth and two front teeth missing which were allegedly knocked out by her mother punching her in the mouth.  The severity of Aura’s injuries will leave her in a vegetative state for the rest of her life.  When the little girl is released from the hospital, she will have to spend the rest of her life in “state therapeutic care”.

Gonzalez was arrested on a charge of injury to a child with serious bodily injury and placed in the Gregg County Jail on a $100,000.00 bond.

Gonzalez had other children who witnessed the ongoing abuse along with her husband.  (I have very little information surrounding the husband – but will dig into it, as I do not understand how he could have gotten off with no charges after continually watching the abuse happen.)  The four other children were put into foster care immediately.  One of the other children told authorities that their mother would often mention wanting to sell Aura so she wouldn’t have to take care of her anymore and would complain about having to care for her.  The father revealed that Gonzalez would punch the little girl in the mouth whenever she cried or vomited.  Again with the father witnessing the abuse and doing nothing.

Gonzalez denied abusing Aura, claiming the little girl’s teeth were accidently knocked out by a spoon in which Aura refused to give and it had to be pried from her mouth.  She also stated the broken bones and bruises were a result of Aura falling out of bed.  Aura’s father told medical staff that Aura could not fall out of bed because of a birth defect that prevents her from being able to roll over.

I found this next bit quite disturbing.  Aura had a twin who died when she was only 9 months old.  Investigators say she died of natural causes, however they have requested the girl’s medical records to take a closer look.  Just seems a little off to me.

  1. Aura is being reunited with her father and siblings in mid-April 2013. The other children have been home for some time and have visitation with the mother. another “successful” reunification by Texas CPS. Please pray for Aura.

    • I am always God-smacked when I hear of reunification in cases like these! I can guarantee that there is no rehabilitation for either the parents who do this or the ones who idly stand by. This is the reason none of my son’s grandparent’s are permitted to babysit. My husband and I both are victims of abuse and neither of us will take a chance. I pray that the system changes. One child is one child too many. The casual attitude regarding abuse makes me sick.

  2. There is no words to describe how I feel after reading these horrific storys I have 4 boys with ADHD one has also got despraxia and dyslexic one has also got odd and one is also spina bifida and im not going to say its been easy its been the hardest job I have ever had to do but I got through it. And I never once ever thought about harming my children they were and still are my life they are now 32yrs 21yers 19 yrs and 16 yrs and I love them with all my heart so how could any person I say person as in my eyes there not a mum or dad do such horrific things to innocent children that can’t defend them selfs they should be hung im sorry but that’s how I feel they are sick
