We wish you all a great new year. We are expecting good things during this year.
At the moment we have twelve kids (5 girls and 7 boys) living at the Home. We have four families of siblings, this help a lot in their traumatic situations of being apart from their parents. When they come to the Home is a very difficult situation because they loosed their family relations, their friends, their belongings and they start a new life.
Some of them need specialize medical treatments; with the funds received we were able to provide for their medicines and everything they needed such as clothes, food, school materials and others.
We feel very privilege to be part of the kid’s lives, because we see an opportunity to offer them a new life, to help them in their school assignments, to provide for their health, and for everything they need.
This past year we received 38 kids, from different parts of the Island of Puerto Rico, with various needs, some were at the Home for a few months, some still with us. From the kids that were move from the Home were able to return to their family seven of them, some were moved for adoption. We are very happy to be part of their life’s and to work together with the Department of the Family to search for homes for our kids and look for their best possibilities.
One of our kids, a two month old baby girl have a thyroid problem, we are working with the doctors to help her with the treatment she needs, if she do not have the treatment probably is going to affect her in her growth, she can lost her sight. At the moment she is six month old and is growing with good health, she is very alert to everything around her, she is doing great.
Eight of our kids are scholars, from kindergarten to third grade. When they came to us they have very poor discipline at school and poor grades. Our Tutors are working with them and, already, we are experiencing great achievements, they are enjoying their achievements. Our main goal is that they learn what is needed for them to get good grades and to see that is possible; at their home’s they did not have any supervision and they received bad words and an aggressive conduct from their parents every time they need to do something at school. It is very special to see their smiles every time they make an assignment and the teacher give them the grade for it, to see how they feel from their own achievements.
These are just a few of our children’s stories. Please feel free to call us, write to us and or email your questions, your inquietude to learn more about our work, our kids achievements, everything you want to know, please do not hesitate to send us your letters, we want to hear from you too.
Thank you in a very special way for been part of our children’s lives. Looking forward to continue helping as many children’s as we can, receiving them in our Home, provide for every need they may have, to see them grow to be a healthy adult. Blessing for you and your family.
