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..
