!Gaby, Te quero mucho, ya lo sabes!

Let me introduce you to Gaby -

She has been working at Rancho Sordo Mudo (RSM) for . . What now . . . 4 or 5 years? She just found my blog (he he) and so - Gaby - you let me know if that is wrong. She is amazing!
She is the only hearing one among her three siblings. Her eldest brother Carlos is our deaf pastor. She came to RSM to help, became a teacher, became my friend, learned English, and is now the principal of the school. She's got a good head on her shoulders.

Next spring she is getting married to this guy- - also deaf and a GREAT lip reader in Spanish or English. He also works at RSM as a dorm parent, school pastor and staff bible study leader. Omar really is a good guy, I've got some bragging rights since when I worked at RSM he was a student and calls me mom to this day. Guess that makes Gaby my future daugter-in-law. ;-) Here he is again at the bottom of the pile:

Doesn't he look like a dark-haired Calvin of Calvin & Hobbs?

Once they are married they plan to continue with a fire and a passion for Jesus at RSM. I told you that she was amazing! So Gaby, congratulations, and don't let the wedding planning drive you too crazy!

Ah, this is picture of Gaby with my little princess when she was almost 2. I can't tell who's cuter! ;-)

Estoy celosa! I grew up in El Salvador but have many friends throughout Central America. I adore and love the culture and the people there. Gaby seems like a neat person to call friend. Someday I´d love to take my family to visit first hand the culture I call home. Take care.
