One Step Closer

I met with JJ from the Little Leo’s (Lion’s Club) program. This is actually our third meeting and the last one was about six months ago. I met JJ when I was speaking at the Women’s Council of Realtors. I was impressed that JJ spent time helping with the Kids at Risk program through the Lion’s Club.

I met with JJ in January to talk about his Realtor office could work with my school.

He’s going to be bringing the head of the Little Leo’s program to meet me in July. They have the ability to interview the kids at risk and make sure the ids are cleared through customs to move them to Belize. It’ll be great working with an organization that can pave the way for me. It’ll be much easier than trying to do it on my own.

Having to figure out these things on my own, especially with minors, would have been a major undertaking. So this will be great to work with such a large organization.

I’ll keep you posted on the developments as they occur.

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
