My Story

Vero is now what we consider our Angel of Hope, as her dad calls her. She had always been a sweet little girly girl with a tomboy attitude. She always protected her friends and whichever little animal she found anywhere, but also ran for protection when she felt threateaned - like that squirrel on the swing set- =) Vero's talent for arts and smarts always got her into the advanced kids in class, easy to approach, inquisitive, daring and brave but sensitive all together. Sometimes she had what we called "Too much" love to give and her bad notes from school always implicated "hugging" kissing or "petting" too much. She didn't mind being told many times to keep her hands to herself, she always found a way to going back to hug you. A Vero ahora la consideramos, como su papa le llama Nuestro Angel de Esperanza. Ella siempre fue una nina muy femenina con una actitud de nino travieso. Ella siempre protegia a sus amiguitas (os) por sobre todo y a todos los animalitos que se encontrara a su paso, pero al mismo tiempo corria por proteccion cuando sentia que le causarian "peligro" - como esa ardilla encima de los columpios. =) El talento y la inteligencia de Vero siempre la llevaron a los programas de educacion de ninos avanzados, siempre fue facil de tratar, inquisitiva, valiente y audaz, pero al mismo tiempo sensible. Muchas veces ella mostraba como le deciamos "mucho amor" y las notas malas de la escuela siempre estaban en relacion con muchos muchos abrazos, besos y acercase demasiado, jeje, a ella no le molestaba que le dijeran que no deberia acercase tanto a los demas, siempre encontraba la forma de volver a abrazarte.
