Hola Carmen Rosa, bienvenida a nuestro website! Acabas de encontrar 14,000 hermanos/as instantaneos......we all share that especial bond and recognize in the others the same feelings we had as children. Our parents were very brave and wanted the best for us.....their decision is one that took a lot of courage and sacrifice. It was great that you could reunite with your family again.....Hope you find some of your friends from Maryvale. In the meantime, receive a warm wellcome and feel safe and secure with all of us. Un abrazo

Carmen Rosa: Welcome to our network. I see that you arrived very young. It always moves me to think about how the younger children handled the separation. I was much older when I came (17), but I also had that separation anxiety regarding my parents for the rest of my life. It was a blessing for me that they lived a long life and that we were able to be together at the end. My father died two years ago and right now my mother is in her final days, right by my side. I have to let them go now, but I am deeply grateful for the time we had together and of course, for the sacrifices they made for my brother and me.-- I hope you find some of the girls that were with you at Maryvale. I'm sure you'll be hearing from other girls who also came at the same age as you and went to other orphanages. We Pedro Pan kids consider ourselves brothers and sisters. Here's a hug from one of your sisters. Yoli
