My husband and I prepared ourselves for the time we were going to spend at Liberty Children's Home (LCH) in Ladyville, Belize. We knew it was going to be physical work, but we love working hard. We knew being with the children would be difficult emotionally, but we love children and would make sure they knew it. However, after spending 5 days and 4 nights at LCH...nothing can prepare you for this experience.

While attending the 2017 MaidPro Adventure Trip, we both had an opportunity to visit the Shama Center in Peru. It was a humbling experience and an inspiration to see those who are doing whatever it takes to help save abandoned children.

I grew up in the comfortable suburbs of upper-middle class Long Island. I never wanted anything, and there was never a doubt that my parents loved and cared for me unconditionally. My only experience with orphanages was seeing how they're depicted in movies. To say that I went into this trip with a bit of a bubble surrounding me is the understatement of the year.

For me, the question really boiled down to this: "Why would you do this to yourself?"
A couple of my friends and I have a saying: In the highest and lowest places exists the light of truth. For me, I try to answer it with philanthropy and the light it shines on how I can best live my own life.

I believe we're put on this earth to be kind to others. I always hear people saying, “out of sight, out of mind.” Just because we don't experience situations in our daily lives, does not mean they're not happening somewhere else in the world. This is my story of how a mere four days changed my mindset about everything I thought I knew in life.

This is my second trip to the Liberty Children's Home in Belize. The last time I visited was in 2013, but it was only for a few hours. This time I stayed at the children's home for 5 days. During those 5 days, I got the chance to play, talk and eat with the children.

I have to say, these trips are getting harder, not easier. These kids have carved a place in my soul. Every time I go back, they carve a little deeper, and it gets harder to leave.

Here is my story from the trip. I hope I am able, in some small way, to describe this experience and the importance of these children's lives. Thank you MaidPro Cares and everyone involved.
