This photo was take on September 23, 2007 when Grace was 4 months old. It was our first visit trip to Guatemala and we didn't see much more than the inside of the Clarion Hotel and a few streets in the surrounding area in Guatemala City.
This photo was taken on June 30, 2016 with 9-year old Grace carrying the bag she once fit inside. We visited Guatemala to help her learn about the country of her birth. It was an amazing trip that included the sights, sounds, people, and places that contribute to making Guatemala a beautiful place to live. I took over 200 photos in the 8 days we were there...many of them will be in the posts that follow.
The goal of this trip was to help Grace develop some knowledge and pride in her birth country. I think we accomplished that...and more!
