However, the thing he loves most is being everyone’s big brother and playing with the boys in the backyard.

From our staff, how does he make you proud? What can we say? Brayan was so little when he came to Dorie’s Promise and now he’s in his 20s. He is such a kind and caring person who always finds ways to help and give back all the love he has received. He’s a wonderful role model for our younger children.

What makes you happy? Marta loves to spend time outside. Whether she’s soaking in some sun, helping Jennifer with her gardening, or talking with Yohana or Merari, her day is always full of fun activities to do. During school breaks, she enjoys taking laps around our neighborhood with the Special Mothers to get some fresh air and break up her normal routine.
