Goodbye to Alejandro
Yesterday, we said a very happy goodbye to a long-term Casa Shalom child! Alejandro, 16, has been at the orphanage since he was around 7-years-old when he was found abandoned in the streets of a nearby town with no idea who his family was or where he lived. Alejandro has grown into a respectful, responsible, caring young man who wants to be a botanist when he grows up! Over the past few years, he has developed a close relationship with a great Christian family and the family recently applied to become his foster parents. Yesterday, they were awarded custody and Alejandro left Casa Shalom after nearly a decade to be with his new foster mom and dad and brother and sister. Praise God for this happy ending for Alejandro!
