El Día del Niño is a national holiday in Honduras. For several days the country celebrates the Day of the Child with parades and tooo much candy and special programs in the schools. On Sunday, the day after I returned to la Paz, I went over to the building site to take my monthly progress pictures. Then I drove over to the Hogar where a celebration sponsored by a church group in Tegucigalpa was in progress, a grand party hosted for the children complete with hamburgers and fries, a piñata and too many sweets. And little Stuart was there, nine days old, born 3 months premature. His mother arrived that day to abandon him to Sister Edith and the Hogar San José. If he remains with us he will grow up in the new building with the rest of the kids. Pending legalities and court orders he is in a safe place with the children already fawning over Stuart Little.
