Sara* been with us for just over a year and is flourishing in every aspect of life. She is fiercely protective and loving with her little brothers, but has also embraced the freedom to live her own childhood at Amigos de Jesús now that she is not responsible for her little siblings. She is spunky, loving, headstrong, and loyal and she loves to dance zumba, play with her friends, and try out new and adventurous things. Sara lives in our smallest house- just she and her siblings and one other child, all of whom are cared for with much love and dedication by Madrina Martha.
