I just realized that we never made the announcement of our 7th and newest sponsored child, Frank (as of Aug 2007). Please see the information about this child below.
However, we'd also like to take this opportunity to wish 2 other sponsored children a very happy birthday. Firdaus will become 12 on January 23, 2008, and Sophia will turn 11 on February 5, 2008.
We intend to mail them each birthday cards and want to include birthday wishes by our users. Therefore, please take the time to provide your comments by replying on this thread and we'll make sure to include it with their birthday cards.
