Introducing Edwige!

Last week, Edwige became my second beautiful girl from Burkina Faso, a country that is still very new to me.

Here are her previous and current photos. Edwige is 7, just like my other girl from BF, Latifatou. Her birthday is extra special, because it’s the same as my grandmother’s who passed away a year ago in October. She’s now my second child to share that birthday, as I previously sponsored Oxford in my grandmother’s honor. Edwige feels like a little gift from my grandmother, telling me she’s looking out for me.

She helps her family with cleaning and running errands, and her hobbies include listening to Bible stories, playing games, hide and seek, and soccer. The Child Development Center information says that none of the children there are attending school because they are all too young. I don’t know how often that is updated, though, and 7 seems old enough to start school, so hopefully she will soon if she’s not currently enrolled. Most adults in the community earn only $10 per month.
