Children of the World

It was a great Sunday morning at church. The Children of the World Choir (part of WorldHelp were in our Sunday morning service. I wish so much you could have seen it personally. I tried to take some video. These 2 are very short. I'm sorry it is not the best quality but maybe you can get a taste of it. In the second video, watch the small girl in the white dress with the green lei on. She was my favorite. She could really get down with the music. Her face was so precious and sweet. I couldn't get a good close up with the video, but I did try to take a picture.

You can tell I'm not a parent yet because my videos are less than 30 seconds. I didn't realize I should have been taking more video. But I was trying not to embarrass Bryan.

Bryan and I committed to sponsoring a child for $30 per month. I will post about her and her information in the next few days. It was amazing to see these children and the environment they had been rescued from. There are many aid/child sponsorship programs out there. I would encourage everyone to look into it. Some range from $25-35 per month. I wasn't sure if we should sponsor since we set ourselves up on a tight savings budget for our adoption. But, it is basically just the cost of eating out for dinner or 5-7 trips to Starbucks (depending on the size I get) each month. To fit this into our budget we will not eat out as much or stop for frappucinos as much. I cannot wait to write my first letter. I'm really hoping our child will be able to respond back to us. Will it not be amazing if we can see/document her progress over the next few years? I think sponsoring a child and praying for her and thinking about her will help me wait as God prepares the child he has for us.

Here are some photos of the choir. Still not a great one of the island girl we liked. Bryan said she was from the Philippines.

They came to our church a few weeks ago!!! But that was the Sunday we had to go to the doctor so we missed them. I've seen them before- they are precious. I would want to take about 3 home with me.
