Summer is my favorite time of year--I actually get depressed in the Fall and Winter, for which I have been reprimanded and criticized, but it happens. Because of that, I don't ever wish for summer to go by fast, but I can't wait until October when I will be in Perú with those children.
Besides that, on the last day in the country, I will get to meet Jack.
But six months seems such a long time.
If it seems that long to me, imagine how long it seems to a child. Not just a child, but a child waiting for help, waiting for a sponsor to love and nurture him or her.
The Compassion US website has 103 children who have been waiting six months or longer for a sponsor. Imagine the joy you would bring to a child and his or her family if you would choose one to sponsor.
