Joao hadn't even left yet when Elizio arrived! He was brought to us by Social Welfare who found him abandoned a ways north of us. But he says he's from Khongolate which is the district right next to us so I am hoping and praying that's true and we'll quickly find his family. I pray this is a case of him being lost rather than abandoned and we'll be able to reunite them.
Elizio knows his full name, although I didn't quite catch it to write here, and he's five years old. And, he is Scrappy!!! They call him"esperto" here which means clever. And that he is! He has charmed us all immediately!
Until then, we'll just have to try and keep Elizio and Elidio straight, both boys in Room 3!
(He got new shoes, a school shirt, toothbrush and cup and he exclaimed "Muitas coisas!" which means "Many Things!" )
