It’s the time of year for dorm changes. 13 of mine moved up to the next dorm – sad but we got lots of new little ones in from other parts of the center as well as two littlies from the community.
Introducing . . .
Jerso and Jeremias. These boys need prayer for adjusting to life with structure and boundaries again as they have been on their own. They’re quite feisty and know their own mind. They also look out for each other. It would be easier if they came into a more settled dorm but with so many new little ones who also don’t know the ropes, it’s a bit chaotic here. Please pray that I and the tias have lots of patience – for all the boys and ourselves!
Jeremias, who has three other names including a famous footballer, Reginaldo, who came after his mom died and he and his brother were fending for themselves for a month or two.
Ernesto from the Baby House – he has the funniest little smile that scrunches up his whole face!
Adilson came from the transition house, also known as Tracey’s dorm. Isn’t he handsome? Some kids spend a year there between the Baby House and my dorm, depending on space. Any Cards fans reading this blog?
Meet my third set of twins, Lourenco and Francisco. Fortunately for me, they aren’t identical so I can tell them apart! They are gorgeous and came directly from the Baby House.
Francisco, the more outgoing of the twins.
Lourenco, the follower, Wonder if he was born second?
Felix who also came from Tracey’s transition house. He’s a bit older than the rest of the littlies who came.
Luis, from Tracey’s, the biggest helper ever!
Paulo Luis (one of TWO Paulo Luis, unrelated, who live in this dorm!) came from Vella’s transition house.
And lastly Pai, also from Vella’s dorm. We’ll be getting two more from Vella’s dorm sometime in the near future.
So, including Deldon from the previous post, that is 11 new boys to the dorm in about two weeks time! Please pray for us!!
