What a Day!

Yesterday was a great day! I added four new kids to my family!

Recently, a company sponsored 1,000 children from Kenya, Wow, right?! They asked for all of those children to be assigned to correspondent sponsors. I put myself on the list to write to five of those kids. Today, two of them arrived: Mulwa and Faith. I should be getting the other three next week.

The other two children came from my friend Debbie. She had a few correspondent children, but she was a having a hard time finding time to write to them. She transferred her kids over to a few of the people in our online sponsorship group. I took on two of her kids: Swapna from India and Abbas from Uganda.

I am so excited to get to know these four new kids! I've already written them all a first letter!


  1. Congratulations on your beautiful new kids! I have Bijay in EI117 as well. He's been my correspondent for almost 6 years! He's 18 now, but has always written super regular letters in English. Since the project is so close to Kolkata and the letters don't require translation, it takes less than a month (usually) to receive them. There was once a blog post written about this project, as they had an excellent karate program for the girls. I'll keep looking and let you know if I find it :)

    1. Wow! It sounds like a great project! I am even more excited about getting my first letter from her now!

  2. Wow!!!! That's so exciting!!!!!! Your new boys are very handsome and the new girls are beautiful. Have fun writing!!
