compassion

First off, because I know you all are wondering. I took the pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. But, I think I just took it too early, so I will take one again in a few days if nothing changes. =)

So yesterday I finally signed up to sponsor a child through Compassion international. I have been meaning to for quite a while now, but just haven't sat down and done it. We are in between churches right now, and I want to be able to still give monetarily, and I used to sponsor a child, but had to stop when I financially couldn't continue. So I am definitely excited about being able to start again!
I picked this little guy:

Isn't he just too cute! He has been on the waiting list for a while, and I wanted to choose a child who has been waiting. =) His name is Walter, he is 5 years old and he lives in Peru with his mother and three siblings. He just stood out to me because he was the only kid who had a big grin on their face. =)

Anyways, I better go finish some dishes before I have to head to work. Have a great wednesday!

Katrina,

I think you're fabulous sponsoring a child. I just couldn't help but think about the movie Garden State. Have you ever seen it? It's very strange overall - but, part of the story line is that the sponsor child decides that he wants to live with his American "family" instead of his African one - so, he does. Just kind of silly. I wonder if that ever really happens?

And - I'm sure that God will give you a chance to be a mother soon enough! *Smile*

I have been thinking about adopting a child as well. We discuss it off and on, but just haven't actually done it yet. I think now we will.

I''m so glad you got a Compassion child. I have the compassion thing on my sidebar. WE have two children now. One of ours was 18 and started working, so they sent us a new one and we like him too. Remember to write him letters. :)

Oh! From Peru, like me!! I've been looking for an international organization that helps you sponsor Peruvian children - I wanted an international one because I don't trust the national organizations, most of the time 80% of the money you give stays with the 'volunteers' - so this is great!! I will look into that website and hopefully do the same. Thanks, you are really awesome!
