Anonymous said: "I think it would be good to enhance the data base so that as people register and update their profiles they can add where they went to, if transferred from Miami to another city/state and the name of the school or family where they went. Then we could search for people by those categories also, rather than only names." -- When you register your account, you can search for people by more categories, including who they stayed with and their arrival location.

Antes que nada quiero expresar mi gratitud por todo el esfuerzo que estan haciendo para formar esta "database". Yo llegue a Miami el dia 26 de mayo del 1962. A mi llegada me quede con unos amigos de la famila. Mi hermana, Olga Leon habia llegado el 19 de mayo y habia sido enviada para Florida City directamente, meses mas tarde ella fue a vivir a Winetka, Ill. Al ocurrir el suceso del "La Crisis de Octubre" mis padres se pusieron en contacto con mi hermana y le dejaron saber que ellos estarian mas tranquilos si las dos hermanas estuviesemos cerca ya que mis padres temian por el resultado de lo que sucedia entre Cuba, Rusia y Estados Unidos. La familia de mi hermana converso con unos amigos en Wilmette, Ill. y ellos aceptaron que yo fuese para esa. Yo pase brevemente por Florida City hasta que mis papeles se pusiesen en orden y sali de Florida City hacia Ill. el primero de enero del 1963. En agost del mismo ano mis padres dejaron a Cuba en el ultimo ferry que la Cruz Roja envio a la isla. Por favor traten de localizar mi estancia en Florida City, ya que para mi es un orgullo haber participado en este evento historico. Los felicito por tan grande labor. Iraida Leon-Pelaez

My name is Enrique F Casero Perez. I arrived on a PAA flight on April 15, 1961. Although I was supposed to have arrived on April 14, but the flight was canceled due to an air raid on a Havana military base. On my plance the famous Cuban singer Lissete present wife of Chirino was on the plane with his sister. Also a classmate of mine by the name of Nelson Barbeito.

My name is Isabel De Lara (Isabel (Chavela) Perez Hernandez) I arrived in Miami Sept 26, 1961, after a couple of months at the Kendall camp, I was sent, along with 16 other girls, to Queen of Heaven Orphanage in Denver Colorado. What an experience that was! I was there for almost two years under the REGIME of the Mother Cabrini Sisters who ran a very tied ship, if you know what I mean. I would love to contact my friends from the orphanage but you do not provide an option where to enter our place of relocalization in your registration form, that would make it that much easier since most of us remember each other by our nicknames. I have connected with some of my friends from the orphanage and we are not only friends we are sisters for life. The Peter Pan Exodus was a very traumatic experience in my life, something that has left very deep scars and bad memories, but in the other hand, the experience made me a very strong person, capable of handling almost anything as long as I could go home and have a good cry and let it all out when nobody is watching. Most of us don't like to talk about it, tears come to my eyes when I look back at the whole experience. I can not imagine what my parents when through and the guilt they most have endured.Each one of the Peter Pan children is a story and I think our truth should be heard, I think that time has come for me. I think I am now ready to talk and tell. May God bless all of you always.
