I could love him no matter what!

Jaquan was the cutest kid I’d ever seen! His smile and big brown eyes made my heart melt. Jaquan was one of the children at a children’s home, where I was visiting as part of a service trip to a foreign country. Jaquan and I had been paired before I left home, and I’d really been looking forward to meeting him.

Before I left for the trip, I bought children’s books, Play Doh, small board games, and other activities to use during our visit. I also talked with my mom and dad about caring for young kids, and they graciously shared some ideas with me. I was completely convinced that I had everything it took to be in charge of a four-year-old for a few days and was so eager to help make a difference in a life.

We'd love to hear from you!
