Jordan Shanahan, Long-term Intern

When I graduated high school, just barely 18, I decided to join the team at Hopewell Children’s Home as a long-term intern; that turned out to be the best decision I ever made. During my 8 months as a Hopewell Intern I discovered so much about myself and God that has forever shaped the woman I am today.

During my time at Hopewell, I had the privilege of caring for and loving over 20 amazing children who taught me so much. I cooked, cleaned, bathed, fed, shopped, tutored, and even taught basic sign language to so many of the children; the kids have such a determination to learn and grow as much as they can.

I was blessed to be able to travel to other parts of the country and see and meet the most beautiful people; I really got the Belizean experience. I was so fortunate to be a part of this experience and I continue to visit Hopewell any chance I get. This home and the children truly have my heart.
