Here is my story:
Warner Bros. new horror movie Orphan proclaims that it must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own. Let me tell you about how an orphan changed my life. I haven't adopted a child but I do sponsor a child in China. His name is Du Xinyong (English name: Tristan). He is a cute little one year old boy who lives at Shepherd's Field Children's Village (www.chinaorphans.org). He is a special needs orphan just like the 100 or so other children living there. I started sponsoring him in January of this year and this was the first child I had ever sponsored, so I didn't really know what to expect. You may think that when you sponsor a child you wouldn't get very attached. Well, that isn't necessarily true, this boy is incredible. Although I haven't seen him in person it is so exciting to see new pictures of him. It is so much fun to watch him grow and make new accomplishments. I know that I am not only helping him but in more ways he is helping me. If you don't already sponsor a child I would strongly suggest it. Here is a recent picture of Tristan, you can really see the joy in his face! Just think of all the joy he would bring to a forever family!
