Rosana and Pedro continued...
Because the Patronato, (Mexican Board of Directors) has a
rule of accepting new children only between the ages of 6 and 10
years old, they had to discuss the matter before accepting both
children. The children’s mother was relieved to learn that they had
made an exception and would care for both Rosana and Pedro.
Adjusting to a new place and new people was difficult at first,
particularly for Rosana. Like many children when they first come to
their new home away from home, she cried a lot in the first week.
But once she began to feel comfortable with her new friends and her
caring house mother, she became a bubbly, outgoing addition who
seems to always be smiling. Pedro didn’t seem to have the same
anxiety as he adjusted to his new life, and now he is so “at home”
that he even gets into mischief at times. Although the two live in
separate cabins, they see each other at meals and during free time.
They are glad to be together, but also spend lots of time with their
own friends. Even at this young age, they both seem to know that
Hogar is a safe place where they will be well cared for.
