Maricela was placed in our care by the government agency, Conani. Maricela and her two older brothers were living with their maternal grandmother. Their mother was incarcerated and Conani found the children living in the streets, neglected and uncared for in a nearby town called Nagua.
Maricela is a little ball of energy, vivacious and charismatic. She has never met a stranger. She enjoys being read to, taking trips, playing with dolls and lots of affection. She enjoys helping with chores and assisting with meal preparation.
