We’ve sponsored a child through Compassion International for many years. Because Emily was adopted from Guatemala, we chose a child from that country, because we feel a tie to Guatemala, and because we wanted to give little something back to the country of her birth.
We just decided to sponsor an additional child and again looked at the children in Guatemala who were waiting for sponsors. We read through the information about each child and Emily immediately chose this cute little boy, Hermelindo, when she saw that he was six days younger than she is. She’s very excited that they are almost exactly the same age and is eager to write her first letter to him.
