Over the next little bit, I want to share the story of how I welcomed each of my kiddos into my Compassion family. For starters, let's begin with how I learned about Compassion.
It was May of 2011. The day started like usual, and little did I know that it would change my life forever. I got an e-mail from Compassion. It told me of children needing sponsors. I asked my mom to click the link to see the children. She told me I could. So, I did.
And there she was on the top right. Hymns was her name. She was four, I think. The Filipino girl in the cute pink dress had me coming back to ompassion's site day after day. I would just look at her picture all day if I could. She stole my heart, but I did not understand it. I wanted to sponsor her. I had no money and no income, so I did not. A short twelve days later on June 6, she was gone. I took no time e-mailing Compassion to see if she was sponsored. She was.
I can't say I felt bad about her being sponsored. I wanted to sponsor her myself, yes, but I did not think I could. I think that is okay though. I am sure that God has a plan for her life just like He does for mine. None-the-less, I told Compassion that if she is ever in need of a sponsor, I will pick her up and never let her go.
