Where I'll Be:

For those of you who are interested, here's a description of Casa de Esperanza de los Ninos, which is where I'll be spending the next 10 weeks of my life.

For 29 years Casa de Esperanza de los Ninos, Inc. (House of Hope for Children) has been providing safe and loving homes for infants and young children affected by abuse, neglect, and/or HIV in Houston, Texas and surrounding communities. It is the only agency in the Houston area providing specialized care for young children exposed to HIV/AIDS. Casa de Esperanza provides residential, medical and psychological care according to the needs of each child, while working with the birth parents to resolve their crisis. When family reunification is not possible, Casa de Esperanza can implement adoptions at no cost to the adopting family. The ultimate goal is to break the often multi-generational cycles of abuse and neglect. No fees are charged for any services, and the agency accepts no government funding. Therefore, it is dependent on donations to assist in the care of the children.

Pretty awesome, right?
