Eseza and Amina

Eseza was the first child we ever sponsored. She is pictured below...Sadly she passes away. We are not sure of the cause at this point. It was very sad for all of us, Zoe especially. For a while Zoe would write letters to her and tuck them away. They used to write each other monthly. Having a child die, that you know and have a connection with, especially when you are just a child yourself hard to wrap your mind around. I was thankful at that point that we have Heaven and could truly feel and relay to the kids that Eseza was no longer hurting and living in poverty, she was dancing with her Maker. Now we have Amina. Amina is a darling little girl from Kenya and we are so excited to start another journey. We found her through World Vision while shopping in the Christian Store this week. Zoe was ready for a new "sister." I could tell by the squeals each time she would read her "bio" on the way home. She goes by and gazes at her picture a few times a day, and sometimes picks it up for a closer look. Amina is going to cost $35 a month with is a small investment for what not only Amina will get but what we will get as well.
