Happy Birthday!!!

Rosita turned 5 years old. We had a party with the girls and some friends and everyone had a great time. These are some of the rewards that comes from helping others; seeing a little girl enjoy dressing like a princess, sitting in the “special chair” and being the center of the party, eating lasagna and cake for dinner… None of these girls have had this kind of good attention paid to them. One of the coolest things is having them remind the adults that we needed to pray before we all ate dinner.

The girls are getting more adept at riding their bicycles that were donated by Greg McKinney and the guys in Marin County. Perla was able to ride from the beginning, which is good, but we are very proud of Alejandra. She couldn’t ride her bike to save her life when they first arrived. It was like watching the guy on Laugh-in that fell over riding a tricycle. But day by day she kept at it and now she is riding like a champ. She’s not doing tricks but she rides around the house without stopping and can look at someone and talk while riding without falling.

We are getting ready to man our space at the swap meet on Saturdays in El Dorado. We will be selling baked goods, shirts, COSTCO HOTDOGS, and other things as they become available over the months. We are making an effort to get ourselves out in front of the public to increase our mailing list to Mexicans and Foreigners; we are still meeting people in town who don’t know what we are doing with the orphanage. As always we do not want to bother people by constantly asking for donations, but letting people know what we are doing will make it easier for those who want to help when they can.
