I Adopted A Child!

Well not adopted, but sponsored.

Leonardo was born on March 22, 2002 (same day as me, except I was born in 1988 ). He lives in Guatemala. His favorite play is toy cars. He helps his dad with the chores. He currently does not go to school, but with my $30 sponsorship a month, he will be able to beginning this year!



I'm gonna be able to write him messages, and send him gifts. I'm so happy that I can do this.

If you want to as well, I went to this site to do it: http://site.worldvision.org/

Me and my friend did it together last night. He sponsored a little girl from Guatemala named Cindy.

Awww he's so cute. Very good deed that you're doing here.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Re: I Adopted A Child!

aw, that's cool!

I sponsor a little kid from China through a ministry called Holt International.

Compassion International is another good organization if anyone's looking to do something similar!
