Meet the Kids!

Many of you have asked to meet the kids. I made a really nice slideshow, but I've been trying to upload it for several days and it just isn't working. These are all the kids that are here on a daily basis, there are several boys that are older and go to a school a few towns over during the week and come home on the weekends. I don't have all of their pics, but I'll work on getting them.
Maria (8ish age unkown) is the life of the party. She's got an unending supply of energy, she's a lot of fun.


Ester (8) has a momma's heart, she's always taking care of the little boys.


Diana (10) is a real servant. She is constantly looking for ways to serve and help.


Ema (12) is my difficult one, she's a leader, and she's learning that I WILL be shown respect...not an easy lesson. Pray for both of us. When she decides to be sweet she's REALLY a joy.


Jenny-Lucero (13) is a little rambunctious, but can sit for hours and play with my hair.


Norma (13) is always smiling. She really enjoys just sitting and chatting.


Ada (14) is very sweet and quiet. She doesn't like to be the center of attention.

Luisa (17) is a hard worker and a good friend. She really is an employee here rather than a kid, but she grew up here, so she is in the awkward switch from child to adult.

Emiliano (5) "Nano" is a little doll, he has an adorable stutter when he gets excited. Almost every night he falls asleep watching TV and I carry him to bed and tuck him in. I love it.

"Manuelito" (6) oh how I love this little guy, cariñoso is the word that comes to mind for those Spanish speakers. He's an absolute joy, very loving and little. He always wants to be held and hugged.


Samael (8) everyone calls him my son cause they say he looks like a gringo. He's my little man, constantly in my lap or hugging my arm. I can't play favorites, but if I had to choose one to take home....well, you know.


Isaac (9) is very loving, he's having a really hard time in school, we're gonna work a lot on reading and writing this year.


Brayan (9) is pure Sweetness, he's my little English speaker...at least he tries.


Alejandro (9) is always having fun, a little prankster.


Cristhian (11) is very quiet and shy, I don't think he's real sure what he thinks of me just yet.


Edgar (11) is a little difficult, but has a TON of potential. He really has a good heart.


Leonel (12) is an absolute sweetheart. Has a true servants heart.


Osman (14) is a really hard worker, and very respectful, he's a loving young man.
