After an unforgettable year volunteering in Guatemala, I was seeking ways to remain connected with the pequeños. By sponsoring Socorro* and Leonardo* , I am able to continue the relationship we started in Guatemala and carry that into the present. It brings such a smile to my face when I receive any bit of news, a hand-drawn picture, or a heartfelt letter. Sponsoring Socorroand Leonardo* has allowed me to feel connected to both the boys and the entire home beyond the year I spent there. -Kristina Nicchi
"Three years ago our family made our first visit to NPH Honduras. We accompanied our friends, the Stevens family on a visit during the Christmas holidays in 2011. Since that time we have returned each year to continue to deepen a wonderful, growing relationship between our family and the children and staff at the Rancho. Our two small children; Alice (7) and Muriel (5) love to spend time with their friends and god sisters there. I feel that those relationships provide our children with a perspective that is otherwise very difficult to teach. During the year our girls frequently talk about their friends at the Rancho and our experiences there. With each trip to the Rancho, as we grow closer to the children, I find it is more difficult to return home. I hope to someday arrange for our family to take an extended stay at the Rancho but for now we enjoy the memories of our last visit and count the days until our next." -Mike Einhorn
