Meet Immaculate

I started consistently reading Kristin's blog right when she was about to go on her trip to Kenya with Compassion International. She was constantly urging her readers to please sponsor a child.

I thought about it and talked with my husband.

Then Amy joined in.

More talk.

We saw a picture of a sponsored child on a friend's refrigerator.

Then, for goodness sake, a local radio station had a campaign to sponsor as many children as they could.

Everywhere I turned it seemed, someone (Someone) was telling me to sponsor a child.

So last night--finally--my husband and I signed up through Compassion International to sponsor Immaculate, a 5 year old girl from Uganda (one of 10 children in her family), who lives in an AIDS affected region and had been waiting for a sponsor for over 6 months.

Her name makes me smile. Not to mention her fabulous striped outfit. :)

We are so excited to be able to do this. And humbled.

And I wanted to share this with you in case Someone has been nudging your heart. Maybe you, like hard-of-hearing me, have not been jumping to respond.

This post is linked to Finer Things Friday (thanks for your example, Amy!), Company Girl Coffee, and I'm Lovin' It.


  1. Tears of joy for you AND Immaculate!

  2. She's beautiful (love her name). You will never be sorry!

  3. Oh, how precious! Amazingly, I have been giving very serious thought to sponsoring a child through World Vision. I think you blog was just another nuge. Thanks for stopping by this morning and you really should go for an "expert" bra fit. :o) Abundant blessings to you!


I love your comments. :) I know your time is precious, so I appreciate the time you spend reading and giving feedback.

Please be respectful of others and kind with your words.
