Compassion: Sponsoring a Child

Today I came across the blog of Angie, she is in INDIA right now with compassion. I have read her blog before as I am sure most the blogging world has.. Her blog led me to other compassion bloggers and I felt pulled to sponsor a child the more I read and the more pictures I saw. I chose India and decided I wanted to chose a girl because I thought that might interest Kaila more. When I saw this photo of Veni I didn't have to think twice about picking her. Why you ask? this may sound silly to some but I have become pretty good at identifying physical features of Turner Syndrome.. which this girl exhibits some of those features. Does she have Turner Syndrome? I don't know. I think there is a very good chance she does though. I have asked if she has Turner Syndrome and told them I do see signs and it should be brought up in her next medical exam just as a precaution. I will update with any further information I get about that. It is 32$ a month to sponsor a child and if you go to Angie's blog and the others she links to in her posts you will see what compassion is all about firsthand.
