Easy and Impossible

Ana Gaby
Ana Gaby

Telling a story about life is not easy at all, describing you what we do every day could be easy and impossible at the same time, because we work with souls and feelings. Because our aim is to give hope and love. How to describe in words these concepts?

Our little girls arrived when they were just four years old and today they are normal kids with all the problems that you can imagine. How are the girls living in Puerta Abierta? They are just like our children , we want you to imagine them like your daughter or son. Only, with one difference: they have a big sorrow, they have been abandoned. Working with them means one has to be doctor of the heart. Working with them means one has to mother, educator and friend. Do you already know theirs names? I want to introduce you our precious girls: Moni the youngest, Angeles Maria and Lupita our twins, Ana Gaby, Mercedes, Juanita ,Karla and Margarita the oldest one.

Moni is sweet and really needs a lot of love , she needs to be hugged , she needs you to look at her… and Angeles …she speaks through her eyes.. she speaks a lot but her eyes are the real image of her heart… Karla pretends to be the coolest of all, can you imagine that!! Imagine them coming back from school every day laughing and screaming like every child, imagine them hungry after school running to ask : “what we are going to eat today” and then… try to smell our soup or pasta which Gris, one of our workers, is cooking for them. It’s a normal home’s scene isn’t it? But there is more behind their voice.. there is more behind their hunger. Because every day one of them starts to be sad without no reason , becomes angry without an apparent explication. Here is where our work starts: to think along their side, to love them, to hug them… to tell them that everything will be settle out for the best..

Today is Partner Rewards Bonus Day, we need your help to keep being doctors of the heart, all you donate today will be matched by 50% by GG while funds last !! Just click the link below and become part of this great project !

Thank you with all our hearts.. we would like to finish this short letter with some words of one of our girls’ favorite songs …

“time stands still , beauty in all she is, I will be brave, I will not let anything , take away What’s standing in front of me , Every breath, Every hour has come to this.. One step closer..”

With all the best,

PUERTA ABIERTA I.A.P.

The "Mother" of our girls at Puerta Abierta

The “Mother” of our Girls at Puerta Abierta

 

To talk or discuss the “Mother figure” of our Girls at Puerta Abierta is certainly challenging.

Pregnancy is said to be a time to be prepared to become a mother. But how to develop this attachment and caring when a “new Mother” comes to the house and is told to care for them, look after their education and more importanltly….to love them? It is certainly very challenging when there are no real previous attachments developed

Learning to love the girls has not been difficult. Not because of their precarious situation of being left alone, but because each one of them presented personal and emotional challenges that helped her develop these essential ties between them. With each day that passes, new opportunities develop these strong ties that eventually will help these girls transform themselves and help shape a better and more livable society.

What is what this “new Mother” is offering these girls that came hurt by their previous life?

First, the certainty and confidence of being accepted even though there is no biological or family ties. Second, the acknowledgement of being respected, even in spite of emotional bursts brought about by their previous life experiences. Third, her everyday presence and loving care, helping them to develop a better woman-mother figure and a better auto-perception as girls and eventually as mothers themselves, hopefully in a position of offering the same love, solidarity, and respect in their own families sometime in the future.

The family is the basis of society. The mother is the axis of the family. This “new mother “, is the axis of Puerta Abierta.
