Meet Michelange pictured above with MaTante. She showed up this afternoon with only the dress she is wearing in this photo. She was barefoot. Michelange tells us that she is eleven years old and that she has never been to school. Her mother died in the earthquake and she has been on her own since then. She heard about us and came here looking for a home. MaTante got her all cleaned up and gave her some new, clean clothes which she proudly came to show us. She'll stay with us as we check into her story and register her with the Department of Human Services. Looks like she finally made it "home".
