Meet Nelson Hincapie of Voices For Children Foundation in Miami-Dade County
Nelson, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was born in Colombia to parents who loved me as much as they could, but unfortunately could not provide the love and stability that as a child I needed to have a healthy development. As a child, my grandmother once told me, that if I prayed with enough faith, I would have the family that I wanted. I would get up an hour earlier than I needed so I could stop by a church near my bus stop in the morning so that I could go in and pray. For a while I prayed everyday and it seemed like the more I prayed, the more my parents fought. My mother left the house when I was nine years old and I didn’t see her again until she went back to get my sister and I almost two years later. My life quickly spiraled out of control
