When I was in Kenya in early May, I met my former sponsored child, Vivian Dede. I remember when she was just a child and we exchanged letters back and forth across the miles. It was always exciting to get the updated photo and her neatly written letters on lined paper. At that time, I could already see her efforts to “get it right” by her carefully erased mistakes and re-written corrections. One of my very first sponsorship photos of Vivian Fast forward twenty years. Vivian is now an accomplished young lady giving back to the less fortunate in her own country.
