Guatemala On Her Mind And In Her Heart

April 14, 2011

Many of you know about Michelle’s passion and love for Guatemala- after all, that’s where her son Sam was born.  What you may not know is that Brandon and Michelle also sponsor three girls there who are 7 months, 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 years old.  Adopting Sam was such an amazing experience for them and they would love to do it again as soon as adoptions there reopen.  Michelle  just returned from an amazing trip to Guatemala to the Casa Bernabe orphanage where their girls live now.

While Michelle was there, she was so honored that Sara Salguero, house mom at the orphanage to 14 teenage girls asked her to photograph them.  Sara and her husband Edgar along with kids Andy (age 5) and Bella (age 1) live with these 14 girls.

The girls had an amazing time during the photo shoot- posing and totally into it!  Michelle loved seeing the girls filled with joy and excitement. This was an amazing experience that none of them would ever forget.
