Hello everyone, I'm Americo! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: June 19, 2004

Since: October 10, 2013

"Americo is a great boy with a good heart. He has changed a lot in the last few years. He is more open and honest. His mother comes to church but has a drinking problem and lives in poverty. His older sister has been with us as well, and now his little cousin, Amina, is also with us. Armando is in the 7th grade and  hopefully he will go unto high school next year."
