  • My heart was beating so fast when I got off the car to meet my 4th sponsored child.
    I have 3 other sponsored children but never had a chance to meet any of them. When I got to visit Ecuador as my business trip, I decided to have 4th sponsored child in Ecuador so that I can meet her during my visit. Her name is Flora and she lives in the deep Amazon area in Ecuador. She looked shy but showed me a big smile as soon as she found me. She and I couldn't communicate well because of the language barrier however, we didn't need to talk... our eyes were already talking to each other...
