To replace Victor, I chose Emmanuella from Ghana.
I don't know much about her, but she has 2 siblings and lives with both parents.
I chose her because (a) she lives in an AIDS affected area, and (b) she has been waiting more than 6 months for a sponsor. I tend to prefer children who are less likely to be chosen. Little Henrique was assigned to me; my preference would have been for an older child, but when I saw his picture, my heart melted and I said yes.
But I hope to begin getting to know Emmanuella. I should get a packet with her information in about two weeks.
