HAPPY HOLIDAY: The Atjum family celebrate Christmas with some gifts that came pouring in to their Florida City home from the Zamudio family and a group of friends after readers learned of their plight via a WLRN-Miami Herald Wish Book story. In July, the children lost their mother Veronica in a car accident. Dad Lucas Atjum (top left), a farm worker, is now raising their kids, Leonardo, 7, Margarita, 8, Francisca, 6, and Bani, 4. Donors provided bunk beds, funds, catering for a holiday meal and Bay Oaks Seniors Home offered to provide birthday gifts to the children throughout the year.
