it came with a recent picture of her, and she’s just gorgeous! and a letter telling me about her family and town she lives in and then a letter she wrote telling me about her school day and all the activities she does and things like that! i was so happy to check my mail and see two envelopes from india!!!

she’s lovely! 7 years old, comes from an average sized family but things are tight. she’s from india. she likes rhymes… she helps her parents by doing chores and things. i can’t wait to get her little gifts and getting letters back from her! that will be fun!!
my husband and i just sponsored a child on sunday! we should be getting info about her in a week. i’m so excited! her name is Pooja. she’s 7 years old, and from india. she’s beautiful! i can’t wait to start getting letters and things from her and i can’t wait to send her letters and things!!
it was funny too… my husband and i tried to sponsor her, we put in all our info but then my browser crapped out on us. i tried three times and it crapped out. so i gave up and had to let go of the idea that i was able to sponsor pooja. on monday, though, i called world vision and they found my account and said everything went through just fine!!! we were so excited! and the woman was VERY nice.
it’s hard picking a child, too…. after looking through all of them you want to sponsor them all! and it kinda seems like a beauty pageant or something… whoever looks the most cute or the most pitiful will likely be sponsored before the uncute or unpitiful kid. i mean, i HOPE that’s not the case, but i’m sure it happens a lot. it should just be randomized. but james and i wanted to make sure we sponsored a girl. life is a lot harder for girls especially in 3rd world countries. and being familiar with the red light district of india, i was very eager to give a girl the chance to never have to set foot in that place.
i’m so excited!
