We received our packet in the mail yesterday from Compassion. We were so excited to see pictures of the children we sponsored and read about them.
When we chose the children to sponsor, we tried to match the child in El Salvador with our children. We were successful to choose one 16 year old girl and then boys ages 7, 6, 5 and 3.
Today, I read the kids the information of each child that came in the Introducing Your Child pack. The kids were so excited! I then had each child tell me what to write (except for Katelyn - she did her own) to their new friend. The kids were so very excited! After we were finished writing to each child, the boys sat down to color or draw a picture to send to each child.
I was really proud of them and their enthusiasm to reach out to children around the world.
