FOR ESPERANZA.
 
 

For Esperanza. Because of Love.

WORLD CHANGING LOVE FOR ONE WILL NOT ONLY CHANGE THEIR WORLD BUT YOURS AS WELL.

Welcome…

…to the place where we are uncomfortably aware of our hearts, where we are changing worlds beginning with our own, where we are loving as a verb, embracing knowledge and with it hurt, getting messy, laughing at ourselves, having adventures, eating tortillas, learning a new language, making our home in two different countries, racking up frequent flyer miles and saying “Yes!” to what God asks, over and over and over

OUR TRAVEL JOURNAL

This story began back in January of 2017 when my daughter and I boarded a plane by ourselves to take on Guatemala and Casa Bernabe children’s home with nary a Spanish phrase between the two of us. Over the years the stories and experiences that have touched our hearts have been many. We have laughed, cried, and been on “medical emergency” flights out of Guatemala. We would love to share it all with you. You never know where the path may lead. I never thought mine would lead me back here…

THE WORK

“You will love more passionately, hurt more deeply, grieve more bitterly and celebrate more joyously throughout the process of caring for vulnerable children than you ever thought imaginable We must be willing to walk down this path, for their sake. As we do, our embracing of their brokenness paints a vivid picture of how Jesus embraced ours.” All In Orphan Care

This is “heart work” and at its very core it’s hard. The uphill battle that these kids face is one that causes me sleepless nights. My momma heart just wants to wrap them all up and level their path, take away their uncertainty of the future.

News, Policy, and the nitty gritty

We are tip-toeing into this delicately as there are a lot of things being said about this little corner of the world and how it affects ours. For me this has never been about politics. It’s about doing what is good, and just, and right. I find myself being forced into a divided arena, driven towards the political and polarizing in this quest. The picture that is being painted is us and them. These kids deserve better than that.
