KUSA – A young Denver Broncos fan adopted from Haiti has a new hairstyle to show support for
his favorite team.
Mateo Del Duca is sporting an orange and blue look. Mateo’s mom, Jewely, says it took almost five hours to complete the style. She says Mateo sat still the entire time.
Jewely and Derek Del Duca may be familiar—a story on their adoption of Mateo and his brother, Diego, aired on 9NEWS in 2012 and 2014.
The Del Duca’s planned to adopt children after Jewely’s battle with stage four colon cancer left her unable to have children on her own. The couple had previously traveled to Haiti, felt connected to the area and decided it would be a good place for adoption. In 2012, The Del Duca’s traveled to Haiti to meet Mateo and Diego.
Jewely extended her stay in Haiti and spent five weeks teaching at a school near Mateo and Diego’s orphanage. Jewely had to return to Colorado without her two sons, but was eventually joined by Mateo and Diego in Colorado.
