This week we received a new picture of our sponsored child, Eyouel!
He is so handsome and seems to have grown a bit since the picture we received a year ago when we began sponsoring him. Eyouel Samuel lives in Ethiopia and is 5, but turning 6 on both my birthday and his, February 13th!
I so badly would love to give him a hug and a soccer ball (soccer is his favorite sport). Unfortunately, neither can be mailed through Compassion--only paper products. We gifted him a small money donation for his birthday, so hopefully the Compassion staff pick out something wonderful that will put a BIG smile on his little cheeks.
