Monday...There is no private foster care in Guatemala. One of the  sad moments  for me was when they told us that now that adoptions have stopped ...that many orphanages have closed.

This is the home of one of our sponsored students. In many homes the roof is old and does not give sufficient protection from the rain....or the dust...or the spiders ...or even the dew that collects on the tin roof...so you will often see pieces of plastic or cloth above the bed in the attempt to stop the rain, dust, bugs etc from falling on the family when they are...
