Steve and Shyrel Osborn are the founders of Love the Child and Amor del Niño. Since 1997, they have worked with private and government orphanages throughout Guatemala. In that time they saw how every child needs a family environment to flourish. They also saw that many orphanages were limited in their ability to care for children with special needs.
They determined to create an environment that mixes the best resources in child development sciences with a family-like atmosphere. They currently care for children with emotional and physical difficulties in an inclusive environment in their small home, and want to establish a setting that allows these children with special needs to be healed and develop into the fullness of the person that they were created to be.
