For example, we have a CFCA sponsor child (from Uganda actually) and just the other day we received a letter from her telling us about her scores in school and how they were really bad this past term because she'd been sick. I was inspired to call CFCA and ask if we could find out how she was doing now and whether this was a serious illness or not. I was also inspired to think about those I know here in town who are sick right now and talk to the children about what we could do to help them. Katie's story is an amazing one, but it's her story and it's not going to be like anyone else's story. But that doesn't mean my story isn't just as meaningful. Of course it is, because it's mine. God gave it to me. I need to listen to Him and follow His inspiration.
My sweet Sunshine has been asking to read it and with some kids still feeling puny, I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish it soon enough for her. If you've read it, could you let me know if there is anything in it that a sensitive 14 year old girl might be traumatized by? Thanks!
