What did ~we~ decide?

Well, I have a confession to make. Both of my children want another brother or sister.

And, the confession part of this story is that both Anthony and I feel that our little family is complete with the two precious children God gave us through the love He started between us over 16 years ago. Along with the 8 African cichlids, 8 chickens, 2 quail, and 1 beta fish.

However, my little ones are very persistent. And in a follow-up to my Weekly Intention regarding sacrifice this past Sunday, we have been thinking about what we could sacrifice as a family.

We have decided to……………………………………………………………….


sponsor a child through Compassion International!

Her name is Ella and she is a 6-year old darling from the Philippines. When Callie read her profile and saw that Ella likes to “sing, tell stories, and do art”, Ella instantly became a part of our family.  

Won’t you consider becoming a Compassion International partner and sponsor a child today? A child you may never meet will be impacted eternally in ways you could never imagine.

Remember, sacrifice doesn’t know how to add. It only knows how to give. 

$38 a month.

  1. Absolutely love it! We are Compassion sponsors, too! Our “little guy” that we’ve had since college is almost 21. So glad that your family is growing! 🙂

  2. HA HA! You had me going there. 😉 But what a beautiful thing. It’s something I have often considered, but have to confess I have not followed through with. I think another conversation with my hubby might be in order.
