Today Jon and I leaped into the wonderful world of sponsoring a child! We have always talked about sponsoring and finally decided we would sponsor a child for each biological child that we have. Our plan is to sponsor a child that shares our children's birthdays when they turn three years old.
This afternoon, I sat down at the computer and finally put our plan into action by visiting WorldVision.org . Buddy now has a brother that shares his birthday all the way over in Zambia. For $35 dollars a month, World Vision provides our child's family with clean water, healthy food, healthcare, education, and, most importantly, a spiritual foundation. Our sponsorship package will arrive in about 10 days and I'm looking forward to introducing Buddy and Sweetpea to their new brother.
