Today students had two special visitors, Leceta Chisholm Guibault and Alex Chisholm Giubault. Leceta & Alex shared Alex's experiences as an orphan in Guatemala experiencing homelessness, abuse, neglect, trauma, and his subsequent adoption at 19 by his family.
Alex now spends most of his time volunteering and supporting non-profit groups, involved with initiatives such as water and stove projects, student scholarships, supporting orphanages, and supplying beds to approximately 2,000 families. He advocates for parent-less children and their need for a family, sheds light on the serious issue of child abuse, and selflessly serves as a bridge for Guatemalan adoptees to their birth country.
We were all honoured to hear his story of resiliency and hope in the face of adversity.
