Time does seem to go by in a hurry. The child I sponsor in India will be turning 15 in January. I began sponsoring him in 2005, when he was 8 years old. I recognize the envelope immediately and carefully open the letter in anticipation of knowing that he is doing well and sometimes I am surprised with a photo. As I write back to him, I am sure to include encouraging words and photos of myself and my family.
I had a bit of a dry spell when I was in the thick of treatment. This time, I explained it to him. I am hoping that I was careful in my wording and I would imagine that the translator will help in that area.
Being a part of this child's life has truly been a blessing.
