Compassion and the Dominican Republic

If you've followed my blog for more than a couple of months, you know I have two sponsored "daughters" from Compassion International--one in El Salvador and one in Bangladesh. What you might not know is that I signed up to be a Compassion blogger, which means I will post at least once a month about Compassion International and the work they do. It's a cause I believe in and support enthusiastically.

Yesterday, a group of bloggers left for the Dominican Republic to spend a week learning about the program, meeting the people, sharing their experiences with the rest of us through their blogs. Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer and Sophie at BooMama did this last winter, when they went to Uganda. Those were incredibly moving accounts and photos, and are actually what spurred me on to adding a second child.

This trip there will be children along, too, and I'm looking forward to reading from a child's perspective. You can follow along with me here: They've already started their accounts and you don't want to miss a word of it!
