Bernie and Connie Tadda have been Unbound sponsors for 16 years. They and their daughter, Mary Kim, recently participated in an Unbound Awareness Trip to Guatemala and shared their experience with us.

Meeting our two sponsored friends was like taking a two-dimensional relationship and turning it into 3-D. The love and graciousness we experienced were overwhelming.

Hugs in Honduras: A sponsor’s reflection

Honduras Awareness trip

Sponsored children from Casa Hogar in Honduras learn the game duck, duck, goose from their sponsors on an awareness trip.

Christy Minor has been an Unbound sponsor for two years. She and her daughter, Anna, recently participated in an Unbound Awareness Trip to Honduras and shared their experience with us.

I see a sparkle shining brightly in the eyes of the children I have had the pleasure to meet and talk to as they share with me their dreams and hopes for the future.

“When I grow up, I would like to board an airplane and go to America and become as famous as Lupita Nyongo,” said Cecilia, a little girl I met on one of my field visits.

It is through the eyes of children like Cecilia that I find my own strength.
