Dear Family and Friends,

Happy Spring everyone! It’s that time of the year again where we share an update about what’s going on in our lives and ask you to partner with us. As many of you know, our two amazing children, Rylee and Kalel, were officially adopted on January 15th, 2016. The adoption ceremony was so incredible and emotional. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to celebrate and commemorate their legalization into our family forever. We have been settling in to our new home in Beverly, MA and have enjoyed exploring different parks, museums and libraries in the area. Both Rylee and Kalel are now riding their own two-wheelers and have enjoyed going on “family bike rides” together.

We are excited to have our first summer in Beverly, living less than a mile from the beach. As the summer is approaching we have thought a lot about our annual trip to Honduras. Travis and I have both always had a passion to serve in Latin America, in particular with the deaf in Northern Honduras. This year we have decided to travel as a family, with Rylee and Kalel, to volunteer and serve at the camp. Every year Signs of Love has a camp where the deaf, who are typically marginalized and abused by their community, come from all over to participate in obstacle courses, games, church services and other activities. They are allowed to be themselves. In a world where they are at the whim of the hearing, they are allowed to experience life without the risk of being judged, mocked or outcast.

Our desire as parents is to teach our children the value of service, love and giving of your time, talent and resources. We have been teaching Rylee and Kalel some sign language, some Spanish, but more importantly, what it means to be self-less and give to others.

Please consider donating to our trip and to the work we will accomplish there to help lives be changed for the better. Thank you.

Sincerely,

The Shultz Family

Travis, Rachel, Rylee and Kalel
