We love the passion KidsFirst families have for the countries they adopt from! "We had no idea when we named our daughter Magdalena that there was a city in Guatemala by that name. We adopted "Maggie" in July 2007. We first learned about the city when we read a letter about Love Guatemala which is located in Magdalena, Guatemala. They were looking to raise funds to build a school for their students. From that day on we have been fortunate to be a part of Love Guatemala through their sponsorship program. The students are so thankful to be able to learn a trade to help provide for their family."
