...Compassion children are real. I married one earlier this year on April 26th, in Hawassa (Ethiopia). She was sponsored to go to university, became an accountant, joined Compassion as a member of staff in Jima, and is now a project manager in Hawassa.
Humanly speaking, she is the love of my life. I am ex-military, but similarly, her testimony is phenomenal (praise to God), and if it were possible - I would give her a medal. She is beautiful in every way, and I will always be grateful to everyone who contributed to her upbringing.
Nowadays she is well known to the Compassion community in Ethiopia, and though we don't yet have children of our own, she is a mother herself - many times over, some of them now adults including graduates themselves.
May God bless you richly, both staff and children at Compassion!
