Happy 9th birthday to Sofia

Sofia dressSo this sponsorship thing has not really gone like I’d imagined it would. In the almost 2 years since we’ve sponsored Sofia, we have received 2 or 3 fill in the blank letters from her.  “My favorite color is brown” kind of thing.  I feel I don’t really know her at all and I’m not sure she gets the individual gifts we’ve sent for her in the past. So this year we just did the extra monetary birthday gift and will say an extra prayer for her and her family today on her birthday.  I guess I kind of hoped for a relationship of some kind.  I hope she knows we think of her often and really does get the letters and gifts.

Maybe it is because she is young or maybe it is because she lives in such a remote area, but we’ll keep sponsoring as long as we are able and will keep her in our prayers.
