So a few months ago, I won a "contest" on Pioneer Woman's blog. Her family would sponsor yet ANOTHER child in a developing nation, but did not have time to write to any more kids, so I do the writing, they do the paying, and the kid receives both benefits.
Today I received my first letter from Mekuanent, and I am in love.I have never been one of those "sponsor parents" before, but based on this one, solitary, first letter? I plan to sponsor a child in my own right (which was probably Ree's motivation in the first place!).
I am in love.
