I think Hilary and I expected to find a lot of things in Guatemala.  Most definitely the beauty of the countryside, and even more certainly adventure.  I think we expected a freewheeling love, an easy and windswept affection for each other and marriage.  All of these things we found.  What we didn’t expect, at least not to the measure it has been given, was to find a family.  The members of the Zamora-Cardenas family have integrated us fully into their family from day one and have never asked a single thing from us.  They show us an unconditional outpouring of friendship and care with no expectation of anything in return.  They are a new and irrevocable part of our lives.  I don’t think there is anything more valuable in the world.
