Love Letters Delivered!

Kelly Starr with her two sponsor children!

Joey Austin with her sponsor child!

We had a team from St. Joseph, MO that visited Kind Hearts care-point in Ethiopia at the end of March.  Two of the travellers had the incredible experience of meeting their sponsor children for the first time at Kind Hearts!  This team also spent time playing and interacting with the kids and they delivered letters from their sponsor families in America.  These are just a few of the photos (below) as the team delivered the letters to the kids.  The HUGE smiles on these little faces says a thousand words.

(Kind Hearts sponsor families - If you sent a letter with this team, I will be emailing you photos of your child as they received your letter, in the next few days.)

As I was scrolling down looking at the pictures I was hoping and hoping that just maybe Firtuna would be holding our letter in her hands. And there she was!!! Brings tears of happiness and joy to my eyes!! She looks so happy! Thank you for this post! And a big thanks to Joey for hand delivering our letter to her!! This made my day. When we get to Ethiopia (hoping for our referral any day now) I can't wait to meet her and and hug her so tight!

I can't even begin to tell you how much excitement this has brought our family today. Abel is the first child listed. This was the first time we got to send a letter to him and see a picture of him with something we sent. It was so exciting. It reminded me so much of our adoptions. We love him so much and pray that we get to meet him in person some day soon. Thank you Joey for delivering these letters. Thank you Karen for posting this!
