Meet and Amiguito ~ Ignacio*

Ignacio is a bright, adorable and cuddly 3rd grader who has been part of the Amigos de Jesus family since 2014. He loves to play, to snuggle and to learn. A quiet child, once you get to know him you will see his mischievous side and be blown away by his English. He is looked after with much love by not only his madrinas and padrinos, but also his 3 older brothers and many other unofficial brothers and sisters.

Playing cars-one of his favorite activities!
