Review for SEEDS OF LOVE, Santa Clara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Where do I start? Our connection with Semillas de Amor began over 13 years ago with the adoption of our son and a year later, our daughter. We chose to work with Nancy Bailey and Semillas de Amor because we understood the need for great foster care prior to our children coming to their new home in the United States. We wanted a home that provided proper nutrition, good medical care and lots of love! Our children came home very healthy and we are so thankful for that. As adoption law changed in Guatemala, it became clear that for some of the children, Semillas de Amor would become a permanent home. The home is providing a wonderful education for the kids, including art, music, pe as well as traditional classes! I have visited twice in 2012 and I found the kids happy and well adjusted! What a blessing Seeds of Love is to the kids! They have the opportunity to live in a loving home, earn an education and make plans for the future! Their bond might not be a traditional family, but it's family, just the same! Reminds me of a quote I love "Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one." – Jane Howard
