With Much Gratitude

It is hard for me to think this is the same boy who wanted to shine my shoes on the streets of Xela, Guatemala in November 2014!!  Here he is November 2015 receiving a new pair of shoes, thanks to many of you who donated to the "cause"! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

My angel, Francisco , made this delivery recently to Jaime and his family.

They thank you and I thank you!


  1. what a beautiful boy and family. It must be so rewarding for you Lori!

  2. That is so special! Looks like they love their gifts! I'm curious--what are those melons or gourds in front of them in one picture? Any clue?

  3. Beautiful Lori, just beautiful. Thanks for all you do.

  4. Oh, this is such a heartwarming thing to see!

  5. Lori,Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures and story. It helps to keep us humble. We have so much.

  6. Beautiful Smiles and received with a grateful hearts

  7. Oh how sweet. I so admire all of the good works that you do Lori. The world is truly blessed to have you in it :)

  8. Makes my heart feel good Lori seeing what a difference it's making to the family. You are a treasure!

  9. Lori, I believe that nothing is a coincidence - the beautiful little boy was destined to meet you. I love the smiles on all their faces. It's evil that makes headlines but good things happen every day. How wonderful to be able to make a difference in those precious lives. Blessings!

  10. Lori, Thank you for your wonderful post! You are a treasure!!!! Hugs, Carolyn

  11. What a smile! And Jaime looks like he has grown. The little ones still make that shy pouty face that he is famous for, such cuties! Don t you wonder what they think of all this bounty? I hope they understand we love them.

    Do they ever get a toy? A book? Crayons or markers? Does Santa come for them?

    You know how I worry.

    And what are those big green things in pic 4? Watermelons? Homegrown?

    And did you notice how colorful everything is...the ladies are wearing lovely indigenous textiles, I think.
