*The children marked with an asterisk are ones who still need sponsors.  Are you interested in sponsoring one of these children?  Please visit our website and follow the donate link.  Also, send me an email (my email is on the top right of this blog) to let me know what child you are going to sponsor.  Each child needs two sponsors at $25/month or one at $50/month.  Thank you.
