Adán* is curious, driven, and wise beyond his years. Often times, you can find Adán chatting with the adults around Amigos -- especially in 'agro' (the farm), at the front gate with the security guards, or in maintenance -- a few areas of the 'hogar' in which Adán is most interested. Last year, Adán took the initiative to plant banana trees behind his dorm and he still cares for them everyday. Also, in Adán's first year in public junior high, he is getting the highest grades of the Amigos kids in his class!
