Our family tradition - celebrate our sponsored child's birthday with a cake and take a photo of our family with the cake and our child's photo and then send it to her to let her know we were thinking about her on her birthday.

Give Twice is the concept of buying gifts for loved ones from companies that benefit charities. Here is a list of some good ones. What a great idea! @Compassion International @Compassion International International #itsaboutgiving

Our new Compassion child!

Looks like we will be visiting a child on our Compassion trip to Mexico after all!! Our new Compassion child, Felix! Felix attends one of the Child Development Centers that we will be visiting! He is 6 years old, lives with his parents and 2 siblings. He has been waiting 9 months for a sponsor and I am really looking forward to learning more about this little guy and spending time with him on our trip! These children need a sponsor! As much as I would like to sponsor many more children, we just can't do it. So I am asking you. Have you thought about sponsoring a Compassion child? Your $38 a month will be a blessing to one of these children. And, because we will be traveling to Mexico in less than a month, if you sponsor one of these children soon, we can bring a small gift from you to Mexico with us for the child you choose to sponsor! (Kelsey is really hoping that someone we know will sponsor the little guy with the blue shirt and shorts on...) Just let me know in the comments if you have any questions or would like to start your sponsorship today!
