Suyapa has been involved in orphaned and vulnerable child care her entire life, from her time growing up in a large children’s home near Tegucigalpa where she learned to love and care for her younger sisters and brothers, to her career as an attorney advocating for children, and as a “mom” to 3 sisters.
She has been raising “Rose” (age 10) since infancy and then later assumed care of Rose’s big sisters “Lisa” (age 13), and Jenny (age 15) for several years on the campus of the children’s home where she was employed as an attorney.
In August 2022, Suyapa had the opportunity to return home to Tegucigalpa and take her foster daughters with her. They now are able to function fully as a foster family with Legacy of Hope.
Suyapa is excited to be a foster mom because, “I love them. I am fortunate to be able to help my girls to heal from their wounds and guide them to be the people they were created to be. I love helping them to each discover their goals and purpose in life and to truly know that they are loved.”
However, being a single foster mom is not an easy feat financially- especially working in child advocacy which is not the best-paying career!
Please help Suyapa, “Rose,” “Lisa,” and “Jenny” by donating toward the goal of $13,500 ($4,500 per child) to pay for the girls’ education and therapy costs.
