I played a little hide and go seek with Sandra and took photos of her cute sass and then she disappeared for a little bit. She came back bathed with a fresh pair of clothes on and handed me a note. It read…
The Mumy of Sandra have said that if you what to take Sandra to America, you are free. Thanks, Thanks. By. By. God Bless You.
My heart broke but not necessarily because this mother was willing to hand her child over to a complete stranger. No, my heart broke because this mother wants her daughter to have opportunities beyond what she can give her. As I talked to mothers, their number one prayer request was that they would have school fees for their children. It may only equal a couple of dollars a quarter, but it’s more than many people can afford in Uganda. I’m praying for Sandra that opportunities beyond what she can imagine would come her way. Would you join me?

I hope she does get wonderful opportunities! So much life in that little girl!
