Magical Christmas for children!!!

Juan (no real name)
Juan (no real name)

My name is Juan and I am from a very small town, six hours away from Medellin, Colombia. I live now in a boarding school called SUPERARSE because I don't have a dad and my mom works very far in another city. I almost never see her. My grandma is very poor and couldn't take care of me anymore, so I wasn't attending school and we had almost no food. At the boarding school, there are another 50 kids and I have everything I need: I have food every day, they give me clothes, and I am going to school to learn. During my vacation, I went with a volunteer family who took me into their home* and treated me with love, so I could feel how it is like to have a family like that for a lifetime… I would like that very much!.

 In September, a group of people came to the boarding school and threw us a birthday party, gave us candy, cake, ice cream and toys. The best part was when Spiderman showed up and we took a picture. In October, I went to camp with my classmates and we had a lot of fun, I learned to swim, and was taught about the value of true friendship and honesty, and other things like that. During my time here, I have been very happy because my teachers and counselors give me for free everything I need and worry about my well being and my growth. For Christmas, I would love a remote control car and a Lego. THANKS CORPORATION SUPERARSE!
