Pedro has been with us as a non-resident for several weeks. He is 13 years old and is a true orphan. His Dad was from the Dominican Republic and his mom was Haitian. His Dad preceded his mom in death. His mom died in the Earthquake. As we understand it he received some help from his Dominican family for a period of time, but they abandoned him at some point. He has been on his own for at least 2 years. He is an engaging youngster. Self reliant but has a strict code of ethics regarding property and people. He lives in an abandoned house. Rather the house is not abandoned but the owner lives in the US and the house is incomplete. He joins us each day for breakfast and school and subsequent meals. He is usually here by 6:00 am and leaves at dark. He loves to play soccer and has quite a sense of humor. We are blessed by his presence.
