#499 our story

The welding group continues while the other members of the team are painting two dorms and laying new tiles in the older girl’s dorm. 

 I walked our third college graduate this year, Carla, tonight as she graduated in physical therapy.

Donavan left for the states to be with Lizzi. 


4/24/2003. Fred arrived and will be installing gutters that he donated. He also is a metal worker and will be working on the gym roof. Wes arrived to meet with me and various staff members to share who will be the next administrator so I can be grand pa. Sadly this will not happen until 2018.

4/25. The last few days have seen so many new children. Baby Michael was found abandoned in a cemetery. He appears to be about 9-10 months old. A family of four, Delmira, 12, Byron, 8, Cesar, 6, and Juan, 4, came to a result of their mother going to prison. She is nursing her infant and he will come as soon as he is on a bottle. We received another Carlos, 12, came from a hospital where he was placed after his father beat him severely. Jonathon, 8, and his younger brother arrived here because the police captured the grandmother trying to sell them. A 13 year old girl also arrived. She was raped by her father and possibly is pregnant. 

A judge in Solola vowed to take all of the 6 and under children using to beg or even worse sex traffic off the streets. She called me to see if we would take those children taken by the police.
