This summer we have had kids over to our house pretty regularly. Sometimes they sleep over, sometimes it is just for a few hours to make a meal and play. With 50+ kids at Casa de Fe it can be overwhelming, and the kids do not always get the same attention that they would if they were with their families. Bringing them home is our way of getting to spend more time with the kids, and making sure they know that they are noticed individually.
Here are some photos of the visits we have been doing this summer.
2 year old Esther loved to play and eat.
Tatiana and Boris got to help cook dinner, play games, and go to the park.
Sheyla and Nila came over and helped make pancakes for dinner
Rosita spent the night with us one last time before her adoptive family arrived in Shell. She and Erin have been buddies since the first year we came.
Ester and Sheyla came over together.
Boris and Edison had a blast. Edison was almost giddy!
