Hi Maria Elena. My name is Silvia Pacin Romero. I came to the US in 1961 from Florida, Camaguey, Cuba. I had a classmate in Cuba named Maria Cristina Estomba. She had a sister one year older named Maria Elena Estomba. I have often wondered whatever happened to my classmates from Florida

Dear Maria Elena, what a wonderful Christmas gift! After so many years of wondering where you and Maria Cristina might be at, we finally have contact. As Ileana asked, please let us know all about your lives during the last 47 years. It is great to know that you still remember us since you were the first ones to leave the orphanage. I still have the newspaper clippings of all of us arriving at the airport in R.I. and pictures of our first stay in St. Aloysious Home. Can't wait to hear from you both soon.Sincerely,Viviam

Hi Maria Elena, So nice to find you. I live in Miami Beach and my Viviam lives in Jupiter, Florida. Viviam has one son, Jason, who also lives in Jupiter and is happily married. I have one son, Jeffrey, who lives in Los Angeles. Both our parents have passed. I always try to remember how long you and Cristina stayed in St. Aloysius but my sister and I were the last ones to leave. We remained there for 3-1/2 years. When my parents came to get us we moved to New York and then made the move to West Palm Beach in 1980 my sister followed as did my parents. I moved to Miami Beach after my divorce in 1994 (lasted 22 years) and am still here. I have been in real estate for all these years so I guess you can say I am taking a forced hiatus due to the market being what it is. It is really great to find you both, so many times we have wondered what happened to you. We kept in touch with Nancy and Clara for a little while but completely lost them. I hope they answer my message someday as well. I would love to hear what you have both been up to all these years. Please write. Warmest regards, Ileana

Maria Elena, I think you and your sister Maria Cristina were with my sister Viviam and I in St. Aloysius Home in Rhode Island. If it is you, please let me know, it would be nice to say hello.
