Mario LedesmaMario Ledesma

May 8, 2000

Mario's mother, an alcoholic, had children all born to different fathers. One boyfriend tried to abuse his older sister, so the children ran away from home and slept on the streets. Mario and his siblings first arrived in 2006. A year later they left with a family that eventually decided not to complete the adoption process, and they were happy to come back to Esperanza Viva in 2008.
