Buen Pastor welcomes four new girls! The two-pairs of sisters, Citlali & Pearlita and Gabby & Alejandra, arrived last Thursday. At 3 years old, Alejandra is the youngest (and sweetest) and everyone loves to baby her. Alejandra and Gabby are from Chiapas. Their mother went through the rehabilitation process at Buen Pastor’s shelter awhile back. Since then, she’s relocated to GTO and found work and housing. However, since she’s working most of the time, there’s nobody to stay with her daughters. So now they’re at Buen Pastor. All the new girls are wonderful. But Madre Berta certainly has her hands full!
In other news, after spending a sweet afternoon together, Sara and I went to Cirque Eloize last night. The show was mesmerizing and we sat spellbound for two hours. The fantastical Nebbia mixed elements of ballet, opera, circus, vaudeville, employing gorgeous silhouttes at one moment, smoke and dreams in the other. Every moment fringed with beautifully balanced chaos. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much talent on one stage. Sharing this with Sara made it all the more special.
