What Is It Like to Meet Your Sponsored Child for the First Time?

what's it likeHow would you describe meeting your sponsored child for the first time? Can you sum it up with one word?

If you can, please do. If you can’t, please use all the words you need.

And if you haven’t met your sponsored child, or think you may never be able to, live vicariously through this 29-minute subtitled video, which recently aired on Dutch television. It documents a young sponsor’s trip to meet her child for the first time.

Watch it and you’ll understand what the sponsor means when she says,

“It’s beautiful to meet him. Yes, it’s worth everything.”
