Happiness comes when a child feels safe. If there is anything that I want for the children it is the feeling of safety. To know that no one will harm you or abandon you should be the basic right of every child.

We received a phone call late last night from a lawyer from the National Police who asked if I would take her 14 year old niece who has been threatened by gangs. A few days ago we received a child who is the brother of two boys here at Casa.  He had been living with his brother who was shot 14 times. He has survived but the little boy is threatened also.

The women had a baby shower for Estella who is here for her brother's wedding.
