internet marketing The Big Sis Diaries: A year ago today...

A year ago today...

...we saw this heartbreaking face for the first time.

If you remember, March 22nd, 2007 was the day we were officially matched with Sasha Eraye. This day came at the end of an agonizing month and a half in which we had to decide whether or not to accept our first referral, and at the end, we had to turn it down with a heavy heart. Five days later, however, we received a call from our agency, informing us of another very special little girl. She was 14 months old, and although she was a peanut in figure, her personality shone through like the world was in the palm of her hand. She has certainly grown tremendously in a year, but the smile you see above is no doubt the same one that currently melts hearts by the day.
I'm telling you- what would we do without this girl?!

Awww! Happy 1 year referral anniversary! Miss Sasha Eraye is so gorgeous! What would you do without her? Your wonderful, sweet, perfect little sister. :) And yes, you can link to my blog! I'm going to add a link to yours as well. Let me know if that's not ok with you. ;)

If you sponsor a child, go to my blog. If you don't sponsor a child, go to my blog because you should be sponsoring one : ) (I've also mentioned adoption etc.)
