Only four days after meeting Luis and Eimy I got to meet MY sponsor child, my new sister Roselyne, or as I like to call her: Rosie.
Rosie and I already have a little history since she is part of the girl’s football team on Friday. She is a great player, she always works the hardest and she loves to make jokes with her friends. Right after my parents and I got connected to Luis and Eimy I discovered that I could find all the AMG kids without a sponsor on the website. As I scrolled through all the kids that I see every day at the school, Rosie caught my eye. What? She doesn’t have a sponsor yet? I scrolled a little further through the rest of the pictures. Rosie was the only girl from the team who wasn’t completely sponsored. I immediately felt that this was going to be my girl, I could not leave the page without ‘adding her to my cart’. I don’t know how my financial future will look like, since I am graduating from college soon, but I knew that I would regret it if someone else got to sponsor my Rosie. So I decided to click on the green ‘Sponsor Me Now’-button right underneath her picture. Two lives were changed.
Weeks went by that I knew I was her sponsor, but I couldn’t tell her anything. Today I was working in the office when Ruth and Rosie unexpectedly walked in. “I forgot you were going to meet her yesterday, so I wanted you to meet her today!” Her face when she walked into my office was priceless! She did not expect that I was her sponsor at all, but her smile said it all. I gave her the package that I gave to the other kids too but with a Guatemalan jersey and a football as an extra, so she can practice at home. She loved the jersey so much that she didn’t want to put it on. She was so shy that she didn’t know what to ask me. She said she couldn’t thank me enough, but honestly, I was the one that was thankful to be part of this beautiful girl’s life. Love you Rosie!
