10/24/2000. Very busy day. Steve and the teens who volunteered began pouring concrete in the new school. The courts asked for a written report on each child in the baby dorm. There are 86 children so it was a massive undertaking.  We received 3 children ages 5,7 and 10 years old. I finished writing the Christmas cards so visitors can carry them to the states for Debbie to mail at the appropriate time.

10/25. A woman came today with a child suffering from spinal meningitis. We took her to the hospital. Steve and the boys poured the next two rooms for the school. Dottie took photographs of 92 children and we wrote a short biography of each and will send them to the states for people interested in sponsoring a child.

10/26 We wanted to have a special presentation of the 15 quinceaneras. The girls made their bouquets with the helping visitors. We also will present graduation for the 6thgraders and the kindergarten students. Carlos and polly took all the graduates swimming.

10/27. A judge came with a girl that she had sent home from Casa. The girls was here due to sexual abuse and the judge sent her home only to have her sexually abused by her father.
