It is December 23rd, 2012...time flies when you are having fun!! Mateo has been home for 2 1/2 years!! Hard to believe!! He turns 6 in March and is half way through with his kindergarten year. We plan to have him repeat kindergarten again next year at Holy Trinity School where my girls also went to school. Ady will be in 8t grade at the same time he is starting so that will be fun to have them in school the same time!! We went on a mission trip to Guatemala in June of 2012 and took abotu 15 people with us including our family of 5. This next June we will be going again with 21 of us!! Very exciting! We have been able to get montly sponsorships for Hogar Luz De Maria as well as help support them throughout the year by purchasing bunk beds for the kids, as well as provide them with money to use for Christmas for the kids. I started a charity called For the Love of Mateo which the primary focus is to use this charity to go towards supporting the orphanage Mateo grew up in, although it will also be used to organize the yearly mission trips, as well as give back to children in our community. This is just the beginning, but exciting all the same!! Life is great, we have so much to be thankful for and not a day goes by that i dont realize how blessed we are to have Mateo in our lives!!
