We continue working for our children

I'm Luis Miguel Baez Ramirez and I want to tell you my history. I used to live in a very nice farm where my favorite toys were the blackberry trees. For me picking blackberries was not a work, was a delight. Besides play, I ate some of them “occasionally” they are delicious!

When I was 7, my parents started to run and said to me to enlisted “Motas” our dog. We have to leave our life there so fast that I didn´t have time to say good bye to my trees! Today, I am nine years old and I still do not know why we have to leave our home.

I have learned many things in the city, now I play football and I love to spend my time with my friends. I'm studying, I have had to work hard, but I have succeeded. If one day, I return to the farm I want to go back when I am graduate and very knowledge. I want to be like such engineers sowing know very well.

It is not easy, before we were all together as a family, now my dad is not with us and my mom works, but we found a place allows us to study, recreate, learn and have fun. My brothers and I want to succeed and overcome all difficulties. We are so confident that we will achieve it¡

Thank you very much for your support¡ you are making possible the impossible¡
