At 1pm today Sara and I had an appointment at Casa Hogar where Paola and Daniela live with Robin who is the coordinator and lady extraordinaire….
Robin gave Sara and I a tour of the home and it truly is a place of love and all 43 girls that live here seem so happy and free.
As you know I sponsor Paola and Daniela and over the summer with help from some generous and loving friends who gave freely and also gave money as pledges when I did the Great Lake walk, this morning I was able to hand over to the Madre a cheque for 4000 US dollars.
I really want to thank everyone who has me with this and I want you all to know that the gifts were an act of love and the money will be used for a vital part of the home. To do a make over of the kitchen, upgrade the equipment and this is not only a place where all the meals are made but it is also a place where the girls will use their skills. So thank you all!!!!
Another big thanks to a special friend Mary who made the girls a wonderful cookie Angel with their names on Paola and Daniela loved them…
Also another special friend Heather who bought the tops the girls are wearing, notice how the cookies match the tops, thanks Heather!!
We had asked the Madre if we could take the girls out for the afternoon and we granted permission so we brought them over to the Mega store to buy groceries and then RV park where we had hotdogs and drinks.
Then it was off to the park. The girls were very well behaved and took to Sara like they had known her for years always holding our hands and always saying thank you.
before I walked them over to the school where they are taking English classes at 6pm.
What a delightful time we all had they are just the best girls ever!!!
SHE DID IT AGAIN!!!!!!!
I think I shall study the dictionary tonight….
