Cooper recently got a special pen pal named, Luis. We sponsor three different Compassion kids. One of them we had before we had kids and last year when Tyler turned 5 we picked a child the same age as him so they could grow up writing letters back and forth. So as Cooper is approaching 5, I thought I would check to see if there was someone special we could pick for him. I searched by birthdays and Luis came up with Cooper's exact same birthday- 7/17/07. So I knew he was perfect for Cooper! He lives in the Dominican Republic and Cooper wrote him for the first time the other day. He was so excited!
If you don't know anything about Compassion, go check out their website and consider sponsoring a child. They do great things for these kids while sharing the message of Jesus.
