New Addition


No, we have not adopted again, however,  we have sponsored a child from Thailand.  His name is Tongchai and is eleven years old.  This year for Christmas the boys decided it would be a great idea to sponsor a child instead of a ton of gifts from us.  (with encouragement from us ).  They still did get some gifts but we all agreed that this was a much better gift to help a child be able to eat and get medical attention.  We all decided on Thailand and then the boys picked the age range, (so they will be able write each other).  That narrowed it down to 9 boys and then we wrote each name on a piece of paper and let Sydney pick one.  We sponsored through .  They are a Christian based organization which I researched thouroughly and use 83%  towards the child and the rest is obviously used to run the site.  100% of additional donation goes directly to the child and  family.  If you are interested in sponsoring a child I highly recommend Compassion...the site is very organized and informational.

your family is so generous. that is very commendable sponsoring a child. do you get any updates from your child? if so,you should share them from time to time, that would be interesting to see!
