Hi, My name is Kim, I am from Queretaro City and I used to live on the street selling chewing gum until I was taken to Puerta Abierta´s home..
I arrived July the 15th 2021 being 10 years. Two weeks after was my birthday, they celebrated me, I had a birthday cake, it was chocolate and all the girls at home had a slice with me. Now I feel part of this family, they have opened their hearts to me and I feel secure and loved. Lucy and Susan take care of us.
As I had never gone to school it was very difficult to find one for me, I was too old to be in 1st grade. They talked with a Montessori school that allowed me to be in their 1st to 3rd grade group and they have been very kind and patient. I am doing a lot of work and now I can read and write, my teacher tells me that my handwriting is beautiful. But what I like more is math, I am very good at it.
As I have done so much progress, I am going to be in 5th grade next year. I love my school, my teachers and my friends.
I am very exited to be telling you this, I have a loving family now and a good school so I am happy and I will do my best always at home with my chores and at school with my homework.
