Last week our third-oldest at Casa de Amor II and longest in Casa de Amor out of ALL of our kids turned NINE!
A was 3rd out of 4 in line to turn nine over a 6 week period - first came boy J on July 16, then girl A on August 1, and still to come, girl J on September 1! Our kids are growing up. :)
A few pictures of the festivities and also of his previous 7 birthdays at Casa de Amor.
Little boy J had turned 3 a couple weeks prior and even though we did his birthday, he didn't get a cake...until this day with A!
L-R: Tia Ana Maria (caregiver with 24 hour shifts), Tia Benita (cook/housekeeper, Monday through Saturday), Tia Carla (our new psychologist for all three homes), Tia Eli (in charge of education, Monday through Friday)
A requested a boat from me, handmade by my jail friends
Afterwards, we loaded up A and five of his specially invited guests - girls Jhosie & Abi, boys Jesus, Marcus, & Edgar - to go eat hamburgers at their new favorite place!

Even though the past year has been very hard, we know that God has good plans for your life, and we are excited to be a part of them! :)
