I will eventually get a bigger picture of Luiz Henrique ("Henrique"), but I talked with a Compassion volunteer today who let me see his picture. I was going to replace Pedro with an older child, but how can you resist this cutie?
The advantage of sponsoring Henrique is that I am his first sponsor and, God willing, he won't have to deal with sponsors leaving throughout his life.
He's 4 years old and lives 22 km north of Fortaleza, which is in the far north of Brasil, along the coast.
I look forward to getting to know him, though with a 4 year old, it will take years before I am actually able to hear from him himself. Don't you just want to grab him, hold him in your lap and read him a story?
