The purpose of this two-day intensive training was to bring the caretakers of the home up to speed on current orphan care strategies and the dangers of not moving forward in how we care for these children at risk.
We have also been working on adjusting to life as a family of four and have also been busy training a new part time staff coordinator who is helping us at Casa Hogar San Jose while Anna is taking some time with the baby and I am continuing to step into and discover my new role in communications.
Dalila is an amazing example of perseverance. Even after losing her husband and walking through tragedy with three young children and no safety net, she refused to give up.
Many of the kids from the children’s homes where Back2Back serves are there because it was easier for their parents to leave them there than to fight for them. This could have been Dalila’s children, but her family is still together because she remained positive and refused to give up on her family.
It is an honor to be able to be captains of this precious family and we are excited to see what God has in store for Leidy (14), Zuri (12), and Jose Luis (10).
To celebrate them entering our sponsorship program, we had them over this past Saturday for a pool party and lunch together. It was a great time!
