Love and Hope Children's Home is home to an amazing family of kids that I have had the privilege of knowing for the past 12 years now. I first visited El Salvador when I was 16 years old. I went with the intent of serving the people that lived in small community there hoping to make some sort of impact on their lives. By the time I left I realized I had accomplished very little in the community, but the people had changed my life forever. I met some of the children in these pictures below that first year. (They were a lot smaller and more innocent 12 years ago) It has been amazing to watch them grow into the young adults they are now!
Here are a few photos from my last trip down.. While there we documented a Quinceañera for 2 of the girls that live at the home. At the bottom of this post there is a video from the event. I am so proud of every one of these kids and I can't wait until I get back to see them!
