Many of you will be asking, "Who is Mayra?," so let us tell you the story.
You see a couple of weeks ago, we got a call from Honduran social services and they asked if we could give Mayra, then 14, a temporary home. We went to meet her and decided that we would like to help her for this time. She's been living here since, and is most often found laughing with our other teenage girls.
After a couple weeks with us, it was Mayra's 15th birthday. This is the most important birthday in a girl's life, so we wanted to bless Mayra with a quinceanera party to celebrate. We got her the necessary fabulous dress and very high heels and threw her a party!
