Posted 9:09 PM 8/26/2012 : Isabel Celis' 7th birthday is Monday
TUCSON - Missing girl Isabel Celis' 7th birthday is Monday.
The family is celebrating by going to a special church service.
"What better way to celebrate her birthday than by thanking God that he gave her to us," Isabel's mother, Becky Celis said, "and at the end, hopefully getting her back."
Isabel has been missing more than 4 months.
"There are the really rough days," Isabel's father, Sergio Celis said, "incredible sadness, incredible frustration still, but lots of hope."
The couple says the stress has brought them closer and they will be ready when Isabel comes home.
"We're as strong as we have been, and I think stronger," Becky Celis said. "We've gone through this."
They are back home and working their jobs again.
"Everyday things are hard to do," Becky Celis said. "Sending the kids to school the first week of school, not getting to send her to school, that was really hard."
They say they have not heard from police lately.
"There's lots of frustration," Becky Celis said. "I don't know necessarily who it's towards. It's towards the whole situation."
The Mass will be at St. Joseph Catholic Church near Broadway Boulevard and Craycroft Road Monday at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited.
