One family's choice can impact others across the world!!
Valerie started For the Love of Mateo in 2012 when she found out that the orphanage where her son lived prior to him coming home in August of 2010 after a long 3.5 year long wait to bring him home, needed financial support to stay open. So she started a sponsorship program to help support the orphanage. Since For the Love of Mateo started, they have grown from supporting just the one orphanage to now supporting as many as 11 outreach projects/ or associations in Guatemala.
