Hello Damaso, I was so happy when I came across your story and name on this web-site. I was one of the "Cuban Girls" at St Patrick's Academy in Momence, Illinois at the same time that your sister Ana Maria was there. I remember how sad she was and cried, because she was separated from you and for a few weeks she didn't know where you had been sent. We all felt so bad for her because she was the youngest in our group. So glad you were reunited and were able to move and live with your own family, no more foster care. From your story I see you have done well in your career choice and have a nice family. Where is Ana Maria now? Is she doing well? I stayed in Illinois, it's almost 53 years now, have never gone back to Cuba, no reason to do so! I have my memories from long ago and lots of pictures of my childhood and that is enough. The best to you and your family.
