PEDRO PAN STORY OF THE DAY: I arrived on 2/4/61, with two older boys and two girls. I believe one of the boys' name was Octavio. On 2/16/61, I flew to Wash DC, with my sister Olga and six other Cuban girls. I lived in St. Joseph's Home for Boys and went to school at Archbishop Carroll HS. I remember being treated very well, and I try to treat my students and their parents in the same respectful (high expectations) way I was treated. As a person, an individual, not a minority, not a "pobrecito." I have always been very grateful to all that had a part in helping me come here and get established. I remember that I was supposed to ask for "Mr Baker" when I arrived at Miami airport. And thanks to The Miami Herald (which I delivered when I moved back to Miami in June 62), for setting this thing up. - SAMUEL NODARSE SERRA

Is there a way to send out the word to all the states that this web-site exsits? Letting people know that this website contains the names of the children that entered without their parents from 1960 to 1962. Many of the children who are Pedro Pan are not here in Miami and some (like me) didn't even know that we were considered Pedro Pan. I love this web-site. I have always wanted to remember my experience & feelings, which I have lost in my subconscious. Reading these stories has helped me remember some of my feelings & experiences. My brother & I went to St. Joseph Orphanage in Helena, Montana. The Orphanage consisted of about 40 Pedro Pan Children. Of the 40 only 6 including my brother & I have found this web-site. Is there a way you can help us find the rest of the children?

A PEDRO PAN TELLS WHY SHE LOVES THIS SITE: "From those of us who suffered, to the lucky ones like me who had a relatively easy time of it, we all felt the same fear, and cried the same tears. This site has provided a glue for us that was lacking for many, many years, and I truly believe that now that this glue is spreading, the pieces are coming together and the whole picture is coming into the light. Not only does the site honor us for what we endured, but it honors our parents for what they endured and their courage. Now our children and their children will have access to all the stories." - MARIA PETRONILA HERNANDEZ MILLS

Me han dicho que se puden pedir los "files" de cada uno de los Pedro Pans. Que requiere pedir un permiso para ver nuestro "file". A quien y donde se pueden ver los contenidos de nuestros "file"?

Excerpt from a Pedro Pan story: "To the many American families who sheltered Pedro Pans like me, a belated and public thank you. I have tried to “pay it forward” along my life but my debt of gratitude will always remain. - Vicky del Rio
