Say hello to Marvin Eduardo, Casa Shalom's newest resident. Eduardo (as he prefers to be called), 15, arrived last week and has taken up residence in the teen boys' home. Eduardo has never known his father, was abandoned by his mother at an early age, and has since been raised by family friends. The family has fallen on difficult economic times and can longer afford to care for him, so he was sent to Casa Shalom by the court system.
Eduardo is doing a good job fitting in at the home - he is very friendly and has jumped right into helping lead the new Casa Shalom drum line. He says he enjoys eating pizza, playing volleyball and studying science. Eduardo says that when he grows up, he'd like to be a forensic scientist. As Casa Shalom's newest child, Eduardo is looking for a sponsor with whom he can develop a special relationship. If you are interseted in becoming Eduardo's sponsor and encouraging him as he makes this difficult transition, please contact us at TheHansonsinGuatemala@gmail.com
