The rain pelted the red dirt road as Sharon Caddy approached her sponsored child in Paraguay. The weather wasn’t on their side, but it didn’t matter.
Once everyone overcame their initial shyness, the mood lightened. “We got giggling and laughing and taking pictures, and I felt a connection you don’t need words for,” recalls Sharon, a media personality and CCFC volunteer ambassador, upon meeting her sponsored child, Liz, and her family. “That connection — you can’t wish that into being, you can’t make it happen, yet it happened. It was beautiful.”
Watch the video to see how the first meeting between sponsor and sponsored child had a profound impact on Sharon, Liz and so many other family and friends.
