Boohers' Going-Away Party at the Baby House
The Boohers leave on July 30th, and they wanted a chance to say goodbye to all of the tías. This morning, they came to the Baby Home armed with two cakes, ice cream, sodas, and gift baskets for all of the tías! The tías were thrilled but also so surprised! I don't know how many times I heard "I can't believe they did all of this for us!" Thank you, Booher family, for your neverending generosity to all of us!
I first arrived in Cochabamba, Bolivia in May 2013. I planned on working at a children's home for just two months before going back to the States... Now over 4 years later I still haven't left! I now teach 1st grade at an international school here in Cochabamba. Someone once said that if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life... I'd say it's true! Between working at the children's home and teaching I stay busy, but I love every minute of it!
