This is Dulce. Dulce means sweet or candy in spanish. She is such a doll. She really touched my heart tonight. She lives with her mom, Jenni, down in the center of town. This was her face all night. She just seems really sad. Her mom didn't really interact with her, Dulce just kind of toddles along behind her. I don't usually get too deeply affected by the people at the stadium but when I look at Dulce and think about her future I just find it heartbreaking. This baby has very little hope unless her mother gets off of the street. I pray that we are able to introduce a new way of life to these young families so that at least the next generation has a chance at a decent life.
These pics below are where they will sleep tonight, just a pile of blankets on a street corner with about 10 other people. How can this not melt your heart....
On a lighter note:
Beautiful, delicious fajitas!! I LOVE fajita night. So do the boys.
