Loving the Orphan with Mary Jo Hansen S1 E33

Mary Jo Hansen has run Casa Nana in Tepic, Mexico for 10 years now. Casa Nana is a foster/orphanage home for kids that have no where else to be.  It's a dynamic undertaking where kids get back to school, learn art, receive love, and get an opportunity for a new future.

Mary Jo is from the Bay Area and we discuss how she went from a chaotic adolescence of her own to taking care of adolescents in Mexico years later.  Along the way we touch on political and religious topics, living in Mexico, and scary stories of "narco" violence in Tepic.
