It's A Girl!
For several years my husband and I have sponsored a little boy through World Vision. His name is Pellumb. He lives in Albania with his father, mother and older brother. It has blessed us a million times over to be a part of his life.
The other day my husband said he thought we should sponsor another child. I am so excited to introduce you to her. Her name is Nomhle. She is almost four years old. She lives in South Africa with her mother, brother and two sisters. "Her mother struggles to provide for the family." says the accompanying letter.
Nomhle lives in a community severely affected by the HIV AIDS crisis. When I made the call to World Vision to sponsor another child, the sweet lady's closing comment to me was, "Nomhle is a Hope-child".
There it is again - my word for this year "HOPE". How I smiled when I heard it. I look at that sweet little face and I am so moved. I wish I could gather her in a big hug.
Thank You Father for bringing this sweet little one into our lives.
