While this site focuses mainly on Quinceananera invitations, I wanted to share a web page that I found about a Mexican Quinceaños (the term used in Mexico for the Quinceanera 15th birthday celebration) that seems special.
Lucero had about 200 people attend her event. She’s profoundly deaf since birth and lives in a chilren’s home, but with the help of an organization called Mexico Child Link, and some Patrocinadores, or friends that helped out financially, she was able to have a big celebration.
Her hearing issues didn’t prevent her from proceeding with the traditional Quinceanera waltz. She practiced for weeks with the help of the two young men who accompanied her.
While this Quinceanera almost certainly had invitations, the article doesn’t mention the style. But she had 200 guests, including a godmother who travelled from Ireland to join the celebration.
Lucero clearly has good support from the Mexico Child Link organization.
Mexico Child Link provides a range of services for people with or affected by learning disability. The core project is a home for abandoned & orphan children with learning disabilities, near the town of Atlixco. Many of them are ex street children. The children live on a small farm in 2 specially built adobe houses where they are cared for in a family setting.
The farm provides a degree of self sufficiency for the project and allows the children to learn practical skills. And they seem to have played a great role in supporting Lucero and making her Quinceañera celebration special. Read more about this Quinceanera celebration here.
