José's been a while since chatted on this site.....just want to let you know that we will include you in our thoughts as the PP brethren celebrate at the annual reunion. We still keep our fingers crossed that someday you will join us. Also, I'll take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

I may have been in error regarding Sacred Heart. I thought it was in Colorado Springs but it was actually in Pueblo....sorry my mistake. In my recollection and I can confirm the information with girls whose brothers were at St Vincent, the boy visited one day each weekend for a couple of hours. I had forgotten St Vincent was in close proximity to Queen of Heaven. In my recollection, there was no communication between the Pedro Paners at Queen of Heaven and St Vincent and the Pedro Paners at Sacred Heart in Pueblo. I only learned of the existence of Sacred Heart in the last few years. I recently had contact with a Pedro Paner who had been a resident at Sacred Heart and he indicated he and the other Pedro Paners had no knowledge of our existence at Queen of Heaven and St Vincent.

Miami-Dade County has adopted a resolution codesignating SW 80 Street from SW 107 Avenue to SW 114 Avenue on the grounds of Kendall Indian Hammocks Park, formerly the site of Operation Pedro Pan Kendall Camp shelter facility, as "Pedro Pan Street." The resolution was sponsored by Senator Javier D. Souto and co-sponsored by Rebeca Sosa, Chairwoman of the Board of Commissioners. The Board of Directors of Operation Pedro Pan Group led the effort. Congratulations OPPG Board Members!

Status update | Oct 26th 2013

Jose Antonio: Thank you so much for posting my Pedro Pan experience of my last day in Cuba. However, I must be truthful and say that the story was published in My Fat Cuban Family blog Marta Darby. It was under her section Cuando Sali de Cuba. But I am humbled that you chose to post it and I thank you. My new book, The Cubans Our Footprints Across America, has an entire chapter dedicated to successful Pedro Pan brothers and sisters. I invite all to go to and read some segments there. Un abrazo....Fernan

Hola Jose Antonio! I am not aware of any media coverage at the 50th reunion. We did have some at our reunion in 1992. :)

Message by Ada Diaz Perez | Oct 5th 2013

Hi Jose, thanks for the information. I did see the postings by other Pedro Pans that went to St. Patrick's. I believe we were the first to arrive there and left soon after the next group of 8 came in and did not have an opportunity to get to know most of them. I only remember one in particular. I'll spend some time on this site and try to connect with some. I do not use Facebook; it was taking up too much of my time and after they changed their security rules twice, making all my information public, I got out. Thanks again.
