Yesterday, Casa de Amor received child #30! O. is about 9 months old, and we aren't yet sure if he'll be long-term or short-term (we think maybe short-term). While he might not have had the best family life (separated parents and a mother who worked on the street), he is very much missing his mother and cries all day and night for her. It's just pathetic and so sad to watch him.
I wasn't at the hogar yesterday when he arrived and today spent almost the entire afternoon taking pictures of the kids so I didn't get a chance to spend much time with him. Pray that his transition starts to become easier on him and he feels more comfortable here soon!
