Is a Christmas Card!
After reading Lisa-Jo's confession...I felt like she outed me as well...
"For those of you who don’t know, I’m a recovering “Lame Sponsor” with Compassion International. I have a checkered past when it comes to keeping up regular correspondence with the two boys we sponsor."
especially after following her link and reading her full "Lame Sponsor" post on her blog, The Gypsy Mama...ouch! I'm so busted!!!
Currently we sponsor two children through Compassion International in Kenya, Africa. Derrick Oduor who is a sweet 8 year old little boy and Linet Atieno who is a young woman now at the age of 19 and in the Leadership program. Last year I was so good about writing on a monthly basis and sending pictures and small trinkets that would fit in the envelopes and then all of a sudden I just STOPPED! Live happens I know and we had alot of stressful things going on and my heart was aching and I just couldn't write without transferring that heartache in my letters and who was I kidding...my issues WERE and ARE nothing compared to what these two face just trying to literally survive!
This is a companion post to this post: hop on over to read the REST OF THE STORY ;)
