Agustin* has a lot of personality in a tiny little body. As you will see in the accompanying pictures, getting him to do a normal smile for a photo is nearly impossible. He is at Amigos with his four siblings- a little brother and three big sisters. They're the largest sibling group at Amigos de Jesús. When not in school (third grade) or doing chores, Agustin can be found with a sweet group of little boys, who love to make roads in the dirt and drive toy cars on them. We love you, sweet boy!
