2012 Beca Family Visits September 24, 2012

It is with a full, happy heart that I share these photos of some of my visits to the homes of Beca students this summer. With 31 students, that’s a lot of time invested and a lot of amazing memories of shared laughter and tears. The families are universally generous, warm, and welcoming. I’ve chosen to post 15 photos below and you can access the full set including images from each home HERE on flickr.

These ducks were a gift from María Osorio and her family; I had to decline but was really touched by their generosity
