Photo Updates of Manuel, Jorge, and Lucia

I love receiving photo updates and seeing new pictures of the kids and how they’ve grown!

First is Manuel, from the Dominican Republic. He attends the same center as Eliana, but their photos were not updated at the same time, as I received Eliana’s update in January. I thought Manuel looked old for his age in his last photo and now he definitely does even more so… he’s only 11!

Next is Jorge, also from the Dominican Republic. He’s growing up! Jorge is 6 years old.

And finally Lucia, in her last photo update before she graduates in September. She looks beautiful in the purple!

Introducing Jorge!

On Wednesday evening, I received another new correspondent from the Dominican Republic, but this time he is from a different center than my other two from the same country. His face is solemn in the photo, but he’s adorable, and I hope that some day I’ll see a smile from him!

Jorge is 6 years old. He helps his family with running errands and his favorite hobbies are art and dolls. I’m not sure if he’s in school yet, because it’s listed as “other”. If not, hopefully he will be enrolled soon! He looks so tiny because of the perspective that the photo was taken. The funny thing is that I’ve noticed that I’ve been assigned much more children as correspondents at age 6 than any other age!
