Compassion International has a website for sponsors. It's sort-of like a facebook type site where you can meet other sponsors, learn about the needs of children, share ideas of what to send the kids, and see photo's of other sponsored kids worldwide.
I am now friends with a man named Jimmy Wambua. He grew up in Kenya and was a sponsored child. One of the reasons I picked Compassion was because of his story.
I want to be that sponsor someday.
Here is a blog on Jimmy & life here in America: A Different Perspective
By the way... I think Jimmy is in Haiti right now visiting his sponsored child.
