Most of you by now I am sure have heard about Brayan and the miracle we have before us. He is blessed to be alive. He had a near fatal drowning. Although with all he went through from being under water without oxygen and to being unresponsive. God has worked a miracle. He has had no side effects that we have seen. He is back to himself. It was just two weeks ago on Friday since it had happened. It all was such an nightmare. 
The terror that raced through my heart and mind when I came to find out he had drown and they were not sure he was going to make it. It was horrible. 

 After a few days of being in the hospital we got him up and walking.
His mother was also with us the whole time we were in the hospital. I called her when we were in the ambulance on the way to hospital. I wasn't sure if he was going to make it or what lied ahead. She showed up at the hospital and stayed until he was discharged. 

His smile that all melts out hearts. He is back to himself.

  Ana has been doing a good job of daily watering the plants and pulling weeds. Jose is usually the one in the garden checking to see how big things have grown and how many vegetables are ready to pick. He picked our first batch of squash the other day. The ladies were all excited about the squash and the next day both houses had squash for lunch.

Ears pierced

Only a handful of the girls have their ears pierced. Last week they all decided they wanted their ears pierced. So one of the staff members opened the girls ears. I told the girls they couldn't change their earrings til August 30th. Some of the girls have already switched earrings and/or lost an earring. Trying to teach them how to keep them clean. Will be lucky if a few of them still have their earrings by August 30th.
Olman decided he needed in the photo too. Although don't worry we didn't pierce his ears. :)

Face painting, poliaroids, and pizza

A group from WV/OH came last week and played with the kids for the afternoon. Although what they brought to share with the kids was something the kids are not use to having or seeing. 
First of all they took Polaroids of the kids. The kids had never seen anything like that before. They all wanted their picture taken with everyone they knew so they could get as many polaroids as possible. The all anxiously waved their photo waiting for it to expose. 
On top of the polaroids the kids also got their faces painted. They got to pick out their design that they wanted and then someone from the group painted it on their faces. Then to end the evening they brought homemade pizza. They had worked during the day to help make the kids homemade pizzas. The kids love pizza but even better homemade pizza for supper.

 Even the big kids wanted to paint their faces. Brayan getting his face painted.
