Last week was a big one. We lost our translator as his children are visiting from Canada for the next 5 months and he has moved to Antigua to be close to them. He quit last Tues. In court on Tues. the orphanage was awarded custody of the 3 little Tzutihil children until they turn 18. A psychologist from the courts came out today to assess that they were better off with us. He confirmed that that was definitely true. That day in court we were also awarded 3 more children. A 14 year old and her 2 year old daughter and 9 year old sister. They are all retarded except the baby. They had not eaten in 3 days. They were from the Carribean.
Fri. in court Wendy, age 6 who has been at the orphanage since she was 3, was awarded to our hogar until she is 18 as was Vilma, a 13 year also from the Carribean. She can be adopted as can Juan, Maria, Monica and Aura.
Next week we need to get serious about moving the city to the lake. I had an American volunteer help clean out my storage room. It sure was nice to spend time with an American woman. We can't take any more children unless we start getting some financial support, so if you feel so inspired you can send the money on our paypal acct. or call Flossie at 1-276-388-3092 and she will tell you where to send the money in the states. 100% goes to the orphanage.
