Adelce is the youngest girl I sponsor. She's 8 years old--and lives on the other side of the world in Indonesia. Her favorite color is brown. (Hey, somebody's gotta love it!) Adelce reminds me a lot of me when I was her age. She loves dolls and bicycling. :) Her dad can't always find work, so their family struggles to get by day-to-day. Adelce's dad takes her to school, which is a long ways away from their home. I am so glad that Adelce's family places a high value on Adelce getting an education. I can tell she's going to grow up to be an amazing young woman. Even at her young age, Adelce has a heart to fight against injustice ... she wants to be a policewoman when she grows up! Adelce's letters are always a bright spot in my day! I love her colorful drawings.
If you've ever thought about sponsoring a boy or girl, I definitely recommend taking a look at Compassion International's website. You can learn more about what their programs provide for kids like Adelce and Rhoda and take a look at the profiles of kids who are still waiting for a sponsor ... and maybe you'll feel God's tug on your heart to get involved and be a positive voice in a child's life.
Sponsoring these girls has already been a big blessing in my life, and I am so excited to see them grow in the coming years!
