(12 years old) is the younger sister of Miguel. Her mother died from AIDS but her father is still living but rarely sees his daughter. She was in an orphanage for years waiting to be adopted, which never happened. When her brother joined us last year, we felt that to keep the family as much together as possible, she would join us. She has an older sister, now an adult, who continues to live in another orphanage. She is bright and has an outgoing personality and should do well. She will attend her final year of grade school in the same school as Sandra and Noemy.
