Hi! My name is Manuel. I came to Dorie's Promise after the fire at the Virgen de Asuncion orphanage. I really enjoy having other boys to play football and cars with. Now that I'm one of the "big" boys, I get to do more things and have more responsibilities in our home. It's fun to do more and I like being a big kid. School is really fun now. I did better than everyone expected and learned so many new things. I really like it here, especially when mission teams visit and play with us.
