to share

We began sponsoring a child through Compassion International in June so that we could help our son understand what life is like for children in other parts of the world and because we wanted to help another family in desperate need. I chose a boy the same age as our son from a list of children who have been on the waiting list for over a year. I wanted to pick them all as I looked at each of their little faces, but Tian was the little boy who was closest to my son's age. We have since received the package from Compassion introducing us to Tian and later a letter from his father sharing more about their family. It is a remarkable experience and one that I hope we learn important lessons from as we seek to share ourselves with Tian and his family.
