It was incredible to celebrate the opening of our new Special-Needs Home in Guatemala several weeks ago. This new branch of Operation Baby Rescue is meeting such an urgent need in a country where an estimated 14 percent of the people are disabled—and 20-30 percent of those are special-needs children.
The construction of this facility is an inspiration of its own. It was funded by David and Carol Loveland, in memory of their daughter Kelly who passed away from cancer in 2010. Amid the sobering loss of their daughter, David and Carol courageously reached out to invest in something that would honor Kelly. They wanted her legacy to live on in the life of others. And today, that legacy is stirring an incredible hope—the promise that some of the earth’s most helpless children will receive the care they so desperately need.
