A Suprising Change

Today, I went to O.C and noticed there was a new face on my sidebar. A new boy from Ethiopia. Then...I noticed that I didn't have an extra kid, as my lines were still even (yes, I notice those things). I did a quick scan and noticed that Lea Mae from the Philippines was gone from my account. My only guess is that one of three things happened: 1. Her sponsor stopped sponsoring her, 2. Her sponsor decided to write to her, or 3. They double assigned her to correspondents and Compassion took her off my account.

To be honest, I'm a little sad. I felt an instant connection with that beautiful Filipino girl.

However, there is now an incredibly handsome young man in her place. Meet 11 year Gemechu from Ethiopia:

Gemechu lives with his father and mother. His father works as a gardener and his mother is unemployed. To help at home, Gemechu is in charge of running errands, cleaning, and carrying water. For fun, he enjoys running, playing soccer, and playing group games. He is in 4th grade and he is doing above average!
Here's to a new adventure!

  1. That's sad that Lea Mae was taken off your account! I hope that you're able to find out soon why. But that's wonderful that they added another correspondence kid so quickly!! Gemechu is such a handsome young guy!! I love his suit! And that's wonderful that he's above average in school!!
