GRUPO, GRUPO, GRUPO!
We hear it anytime a group arrives or anytime the kids get word of a group coming. We also sometimes hear it just when a car pulls up at the possibility that it might be a group. That is just how much the kids love the groups. Groups from Mexico come for the day and do activities or play with the kids for a couple hours and groups from the states might do so for the whole week. All the groups are loved by the kids.
Today a group from another children’s home came with clown’s stories, face paint and balloons. I must admit, I never would have though that the kids that had their faces painted as clowns two days ago would be so scared of them! The kids loved it and they come as a blessing to s all and to Gabriel House in general as do all the groups. But there is one group that is spoken of.
There is one group that has been coming for years and all the kids know about. They know they will come and they know they will get to go. El grupo de la playa—the beach group. They take about ten kids a day to the beach and do everything for them from changing diapers to feeding to activities and pushing wheelchairs. They provide it all and do it all. And the kids love it. And they got here today.
