Pedro, I hope you would also want to connect with some Pedro Pan sisters, because I am a sister and just had to write a comment to you. Well, you and I might even be distantly related, as my great-grandmother was a Padrón. She was from Las Villas.

Reading your story I felt a bit of that old jealousy that I had for boys, who seemed to be able to have more adventures and get away with much more mischief than we girls did. But in the end I am perfectly content to just read about it. You keep those bullies and blanket thieves under control and write as much as you want. You tell a story well. Con aprecio de tu hermana Pedro Pan, Yolanda
