Mamas Especiales

The women who care for the children at Dorie's Promise are called Special Moms.  This team of 32 women serve as the mothers, mentors, and spiritual guides to the children who have been abandoned, abused, or rescued from their families and former home life. 

These wonderful women work twelve-hour shifts every other day, regardless of holiday.  Dorie's Promise provides them with a stable income to help provide for their families.  Even with stable jobs, they are not exempt from the trials and tribulations of life in Guatemala.  They have suffered great loss in their families.  They are struggling as single mothers.  They arrive at work each day after long trips on the "chicken" bus because they cannot afford a vehicle.

Once they are at Dorie's, you only see their heart for the children and love of their job.  I have become especially close with two of the women who work there.  Seeing them again was exciting and I continue to pray for them.  I can't wait to go back in a few months.
