There are at present 29 children living at Hogar Para Todos. The house belonged to the director’s parents, who from what I understand left it to her when they died. Nancy is 76 years old and usually is woken by a staff member or a young person whose problem can only be resolved by her at around 6:30 in the morning. From there she starts her day, never seeming to rush, but always making progress. By 8:00 or thereabouts she is fully dressed and has had her breakfast and is getting to the day’s to-dos. She has no office, and her only device is a Blackberry from which she occasionally checks her Facebook page. Throughout the day she floats between the accounting office (which has become my temporary home, as there is a computer I can generally use if no one else needs it), the “Director’s office,” which is a funny misnomer because of course Nancy is the director, but there are 3 desks in there and none of them are hers, and the various other parts of the house where care and support are the order of the day: the kitchen, the babies’ room, the playground, the dining room.
