So, in the true spirit of being a sponsor, I have to think three months ahead of time. It is February, so it's time to send gifts to my kids with May birthdays.
Do any of your sponsored children have birthdays in May?
On May 8th, my littlest kiddo, Dafyne, will turn 5 years old. I am sending her a princess themed package. Along with the things you see in the picture, I also sent her a picture of herself, that I decorated as a princess. I don't have a picture of it anymore, but it's super cute.
I am sending her pink birthday paper, coloring pages, sparkley stickers, and stickers that she can color herself.
On May 10th, my love, Abu-Bakarr, will turn 11 years old. I just cannot believe he's already turning 11. He was only 5 (almost 6) years old when I sponsored him. It's been a wonderful 5 years. Because I sponsor Abu through World Vision, I am able to send him pretty much anything I can think of.
I am sending him an outfit (shirt, pants, shoes). I am also sending him some dog tags that I had custom made for him. I think he's going to love his gift.
I sure hope these clothes fit him, I got him clothes that are a size 10/12, so I imagine that they will. It's always so hard to tell if things are going to fit. I would love to see a picture of him wearing them, but I have never gotten "just because" pictures from him before, so we'll have to see.
