Once Jason and I got back from our honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, we decided we were going to sponsor a child from there.  We had talked about sponsoring a child through Compassion International for a long time, but never knew how to pick.  When we got home from the honeymoon, we narrowed our search down to children from the Dominican Republic, and then read their biographies.  When we came across Rayner's, his sweet 5 year old self, who loves baseball, won our hearts.  We started sponsoring him in July, but we just got our first letter.

Meet Rayner:
How couldn't you love that face??  Better yet, here is our first letter from him, complete with an adorable picture colored by him, which is now hanging on our fridge.

It was really important to us to be able to help someone else, especially a child in need.  We're looking forward to our contact with Rayner, and to hear how our sponsorship is affecting his life!!  His letter and picture absolutely made our day!!
