Dear Juan, I read your story and I am filled with great sadness over what happened to you. I want to tell you that of all the Pedro Pan success stories, yours is the one that gives me the greatest pride; you have triumphed over tremendous adversity, God bless you and your family. Un abrazo from your Pedro Pan sister, Carmen
