Creation

Okay, about Creation.  There is so much to tell, so I’ll probably just hop on a bunny trail and go with it, then fill in stuff in later blogs or down later trails.

We sponsored a child through Compassion International.  I had sponsored a child a few years back who later had to drop out of the program (I think the whole village dropped it or something, I don’t know), so I had wanted to re-sponsor anyway but wanted to pick out my own instead of having them send me some random child.  I mainly wanted to pick myself so that I could get a child in a Spanish-speaking country – that way I can write in Spanish and not have to worry about translation.  (From the translations I’ve gotten on my end, I just don’t have a lot of confidence in their translating sometimes.)  Anyway, our new child is Azucena Ullua Ordaz and she’s absolutely precious – 5 years old and with an adorable grin.  Unfortunately, although she lives in Mexico, apparently the native language in her area is Zapoteca.  Yeah.  <whacking myself in the forehead>  So for now I guess I’ll write to her in English until I figure out if they actually do understand Spanish there…

Eww.  There is actually a dead gnat in my coffee.  I am so glad I looked before I drank.

Overwhelmed.  More later.
