Growing Up in Compassion

I love photo updates of my sponsor children! I wanted to take a chance to share some of them here with you. I have updates for 2 out of my 3 children. Please also check back for for when I receive my correspondent children packets!

First is Chatchai from Thailand. I began sponsoring him when he was only 4. He is now 6 years old. Such a sweetheart and so glad to have received an updated picture!

Here is my Nury from Mexico. She is 10 years old now. I began sponsoring her when she was 9. Very soon after I received her child packet in the mail, an updated picture showed up online. She is growing up beautifully and looks so cute in green.

Last, but not least, is my dear Yamairy from Dominican Republic. I do not have an updated picture from her yet, but I look forward to seeing a big smile on her face when it does come.

Life is too short and we never know when our Savior will bring us home. I am just so blessed that for the time being He has brought these children into my life. I laugh and cry with what they share with me in my letters. I have all of the pictures they have drawn for me in a special folder that I pull out to look at from time to time. They soon will receive pictures from my of my new class and pictures of my family.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words... but I know for a fact that these kids mean so much more than that to our Lord. I encourage everyone to send pictures to your sponsored children as often as you can... even if you do not receive anything in return. Let them know that you are really there and that you love them and pray for them.


  1. Thanks so much for sharing! I need to send more pics! Last time I sent a pic of me holding their pic. But I need to send more.

    Love how yours have changed... I love seeing updated pics!

    Much love,

  2. These are great! We got an updated photo this week, too. I love seeing how much they have grown.

    Have you ever made a Hotprints book for your kids? You can get 4 free ones each month and only pay $2.99 shipping (for each). I made one with pics of where we live, lots of pics of us and also pics of our parents and grandparents.

  3. Thanks Jill for the suggestion! I just signed up!
