Baby Mynor

Meet Casa Shalom's newest resident: baby Mynor. Mynor came to us yesterday and is estimated to be about 15 or 16 days old. On January 9th, Mynor was found by a firefighter in a ditch on the side of the road in Guatemala City. He was taken to a local hospital where it was determined that he'd been born that same day or possibly on the 8th. Mynor was brought to us yesterday afternoon and is now the smallest resident of the baby house. All the babies are thrilled with their new "hermanito" (little brother)!

Getting changed out of his hospital clothes.

House mother Doris feeds Mynor his first bottle in his new home.

Getting sleepy!

Dear Jess and Josh, does the country allow any of these children to be adopted out of the country?
