Most of you know that I am raising 3 boys but only those who know me well know that I sponsor 2 girls. As a mother of 3 boys, I was happy to add to my family by sponsoring 2 lovely daughters. I grew up in a small house in Jamaica with a large blended family. I understand hard work. I understand poverty. I also understand that if a house is filled with love and a child's basic needs of food, water, housing, love and a good education, they can grow into the greatness that God has already instilled in them.
I sponsored my 2 girls on Compassion Sunday at my church. A member approached me after her testimony about the program and showed me all the beautiful children that were in need of support. When I looked into the eyes of my girls, I knew that I wanted to be a part of their lives. Over the past 3 years, I have watched them blossom into lovely young ladies. I now call them family.
Compassion International organizes many trips so that families can connect. My goal is to visit them soon.
