Candelario was one of the brothers that was passed from foster home to foster home. He was beaten physically and abused emotionally. He was involved with his brothers in the group robberies of the convenient stores. We found Candelario and his brothers at the temporary orphanage in Creel. We were able to bring him and his brothers from there to our Rescue a Child orphanage in Juarez. Candelario is very smart and loves to go to school. He wants to learn as much as he possibly can. He works very hard to complete his homework and get the best grades he can. He has adjusted well to his new home and really loves living there.
Here are a few of things Candelario had to say:
I lived in Chihuahua for three years, and in Creel for five years. I did not like living there. Now I’m living in a house with my new family. I feel well and happy. I play, and I go to school and church. I do my homework. I am learning about computers.
I want to be a singer for God. I want to thank God, Jeff, Halee, Patty, Arnufo, Lupita and my pastors Daniel and Claudia for all they have done for us.
