“Dear Panama,” Documentary

“Querido Panama,” or “Dear Panama” is a documentary by a Voice for the Voiceless and Grassroots News covering the injustice of Panamanian children losing their childhoods to 3-10 years of institutionalization with only a 2% chance for adoption or foster care.

Matt Hedspeth of Heart’s Cry International, an adoptive parent himself, says, “‘These children need to get out of orphanages as soon as possible, they are under the false impression that, well they are at the orphanages, they have got meals, place to sleep and they are fine, but that is just so far from the truth. They are not fine!”
