I respect,value and honor your resilience. Quite a strong little girl! I have no doubt that you have become a compassionate and hard working human being. I feel deeply for the challenges that both you & your brother encountered.Our pain is a very private pain. As it is often said...we bend but do not brake... be well

Hola, Ada. The idea of having a Pedro Pan Retirement Village has also been discussed among some of the “kids” in the recent reunions. Who knows? Maybe one our many enterprising people will actually come up with something like that. –Ada, it touched my heart to think of the long time you and Hector were separated from your parents and even more about how you two were separated from each other. My brother was not yet 12 and I was 17 when we came and I remember that the three things I worried most about were: 1) Being separated from my parents indefinitely. 2) That Conrad and I would be sent separate ways. 3) Being sent to an orphanage. You went through all three of these things. You are another example of the resiliency and resourcefulness of the human spirit and of the Cuban kids of the exodus, but it is still too sad that you had to go through all that. –Ada, I got one almost identical twin of your cat. He's meowing at my feet right now. His name is Goyo and he weighs 20 pounds. He’s ridiculously silly, but extremely sweet. – Con un abrazo Pedro Pan, Yoli
