Jaime Alonso

Date of Birth: June 10, 2002


Jaime Alonso was born in Rivas on June 10, 2002. He came to CICRIN in October 2013. Alonso came to us from an at-risk situation at home. He was living in impoverished conditions with his parents and four more children, including his younger brother Dereck with whom he shared his bed. Dereck is also at CICRIN now. Alonso was underweight, and was not attending school when he arrived.
 He is a bright little boy who is usually one step ahead of his classmates despite his lack of education. 
Jaime has an amazing gift for prayer and an incredible amount of faith in our Lord. He likes to climb our mango trees, help with the younger children and play soccer with the boys. Alonso says he is grateful for the opportunity given to him at CICRIN because he now enjoys sleeping on his own bed, and going full time to school.
