I have been involved with Seeds of Love since 2005. I have adopted two children from the Children's Home and have developed personal relationships with each of the Home's permanent residents. The amazing love, creativity and dedication that Nancy and her staff put into their work makes all the difference, everyday, for those precious young lives. At Seeds of Love they have a chance, against harrowing odds, to a healthy, happy and fullfilling childhood - not to mention the potential they have to become the kind of adults that change the world for the better. Seeds of Love is a unique organization, with a huge impact impact on these kids, Guatemala and the possibilities of a bright future!

Seeds of Love provides life changing opportunities for a small, but special group of children in Guatemala through the teaching of values like honestly, respect, and self-advocacy. This is a fantastic grassroots program that truly is changing lives at the most basic, profound level.

I was honored by the request to join the board last year for this amazing children's home in Guatemala. Because the adoption laws in Guatemala have changed, this once orphanage has needed to turn into a permanent home for the 30 children that did not get adopted before the law was passed. Many private orphanages closed their doors when the law was enforced forcing the children they were taking care of to go to state facilities. But Nancy Bailey and the rest of the board members did and are doing, everything they can so that these children do not end up in a state facility. After hearing this story and the new need of raising funds to nurture, love, support, and take care of these children as they grow into young adults, I decided to join the team. The home is extraordinary, Nancy is extraordinary, the kids are extraordinary, and all the supporters are as well! Thank you for caring enough to read about us - we very much appreciate it! Please let us know if you would like to support us in any other way as well. Even $20/ month can make a huge impact on the home and the children's lives. Thank you!!!
