When we visited the home for under 5 year olds my heartstrings were pulled at. Now that I have my own child, it breaks my heart to meet children who are not able to be with their families. I just wanted to pick them all up and give them big hugs.
Living in a place that was away from the hustle and bustle of the usual tourist spots gave me a greater insight into the Ecuadorian way of life.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. - Mae West
Being confronted with children on the streets, begging to survive, I felt a great need to do something, rather than accept this inequality as normal.
