AMIGUITA OF THE WEEK ~ Mili



Mili, whose full name is Milagros (meaning 'miracle' in English), came to us at just a few months old with her older sisters Caterin (age 9) and Jeimy (age 7). We normally do not serve children under 3 years old, but because she and her sisters came to us in very sudden circumstances, we made an exception for her so as not to separate the three. Since she was so young when she came, Suyapa, our on-site lawyer, made the selfless commitment of taking Mili under her wing to provide her with the 24/7 attention and love that a baby needs. Today, at 3 years old, Mili knows Suyapa as 'Mama' and the two have a beautiful relationship. Mili started 'Kinder' (preschool) this year at the Amigos de Jesus school. She is very social and loves to play dress-up (especially as Princess Sofia from the movie Sofia the First).

Her interview is about as adorable as a 3-year-old can make it!
