A Hard-Working Employee Finds Her Own Successes In Life

Her wonderful character and the quality of care she provides has earned her much respect.

"Tia Loly" as we all lovingly call her.

My name is María Dolores Bernal. It has been thirteen years since my mother died, and when she died I asked God to provide me with a work opportunity that would allow me to be close to my children. Previously I worked in the capital, and I was far away from them. It was at that time that I learned about Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, and that it was nearby to where I lived. I then met a person who collaborated with the foundation and offered to take me there to get more information.

With much enthusiasm I arrived and saw the babies’ house. It was then that the director of the home asked me if I would stay, and I said ‘yes.’ I was very thankful for being able to work with the little ones. I learned to love, show tenderness and joy to all the ones who needed attention. Little by little, I learned each of their names, and my work became something very special. Those days were short, but I enjoyed every little moment from when I gave them a hug or played with them. I had the blessing of meeting and knowing Father Wasson who was a valuable person that inspired love, tenderness and peace himself.

Nowadays, I work in Casa Santa María (the girls’ house) as the director. I feel happy to have received such an answer from God to allow me to continue serving others. I have seen with great joy the growth of many of these little ones. I have been present for their graduations, and each special event only to realize that we share together the joys of each one of their achievements. For me, it is a thing of pride to see them overcome bad situations and complete the dreams of our dear Father Wasson.

I am very thankful for God and Father Wasson and being able to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary as a home. I ask God that He give me the opportunity to continue working for this great family of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos in El Salvador.
