Maria speaks highly of you and trusts you… In which living situation do you think Maria would thrive ? Her current placement with the Beckers? Or would moving to El Salvador to live with her aunt be better? Or would she be better placed
With the Valdezs, I’m sure she’s told you how she feels about each home.

Her to think about this ? Would you recommend her joining the military?

Your own daughter and Maria. Have you and your husband considered adopting the girls? What do you know of Maria’s medical needs? How do you assist her with them? Does she comfortably discuss her diabetes and asthma with you?
