I'm having inner turmoil. I have this habit of looking at World Vision's website, probably too often. Two-ish weeks ago, I found a little boy named Klaudjo, he lives in the same village in Albania as Majlinda and Inaete. He's Bobby Brady, from the first season of The Brady Bunch....kinda like this picture, but younger from the very first episode, if you watched it. He's the same age (five) as my two girls too. He likes to color and play with toy cars.
So when I found him, I told Steve about him and said I wanted to sponsor him too. Like the wise person he is, Steve said "can you do three Albanian babies? would that be too much for you? you like to send them little packages too, and three can get expensive."
He's smart, that guy.
That night, Steve was at my apartment, and I wanted to show him the picture of Klaudjo, but when I logged in, I couldn't find him. Maybe he was sponsored already?
I just looked again now, and there he is! I haven't been able to get him out of my mind for the last two weeks!
I'm now debating if three Albanian babies is too much....

Do I talk about my Albanian babies too much? Tell me if I need to stop!

No! I don't think you talk about them so much! It's such a great way to keep the world connected. I can't wait until I have a job and can sponsor someone too.

I might have already told you this but I fairly recently started sponsoring Jose from Honduras. I got my first letter from him just the other day and was jumping up and down with excitement when I opened it. I'm putting some things together for a package right now.

Thanks to your last post I ended up going to the world vision site and I am now the proud sponsor of 2 little girls. One in Albania and one in Mexico. So you are passing around the love and helping more children get sponsored. I always thought these world sponsorships were scams until I heard your story about the table.

I just got my sponsor package in the mail today and am looking forward to this adventure.

It is refreshing to hear about someone actually doing something to make a positive impact in a child’s life. Because of your post I signed up at In2books. So please, keep the inspirational stories coming!
