Meet an Amiguita ~ Cinthia*

IMG_9388.JPG

Cinthia* is a one of a kind little girl who is both sweet and demanding at the same time. She is spirited, energetic, and imaginative with a strong will, a big heart, and a fierce love and loyalty for her favorite people. She is always seeking creative solutions to problems and uses her big beautiful eyes to ask for help and get what she wants. Cinthia was one of the first girls at Amigos and one of the first little children to call the 'hogar' home. We have loved watching her grow up, learning and growing deeper each day into the person God created her to be.
