Birthday: July 15
Sponsored since: May 2014
How we got her: There isn't a special story about requesting Anahi- I was just on the list for a correspondence child. But she arrived on my account on my birthday!! So that was a neat surprise.
About her family: Anahi lives with her mom, dad, and little brother Isai. Isai is a toddler. They like to watch TV together. Anahi's mom writes all her letters for her, and they are just the sweetest. I hope that someday I am able to meet both Anahi and her momma! According to Compassion's website, Anahi's mom sells tortillas for a living, which sounds pretty awesome to me.
Hobbies and interests: Anahi is the sweetest, most bubbly little girl. She likes playing and dancing. She likes to eat- she has mentioned food in several of her letters. She likes to draw and color and always makes really sweet pictures for me. Her favorite animal is the turtle, so I was happy to find some turtle stuff for her when I sent her a gift! I can't wait to find out what she thinks of everything, and I hope I get an extra picture of her!
Here are some excerpts from Anahi's letters!
"Anahi wants to thank you for your sponsorship because God put you in our way to bless us through you."
Anahi's first picture
"She always prays for you and she says she wants to know you."
"Hugs and kisses for your family."
"I hope you are doing well by the side of your husband and all your family."
"It is a blessing that all your family attends to church and all your family is in the way."
"Anahi tells you that her favorite animal is a turtle and in my grandma's house there are many animals."
"Anahi appreciates you and cares for you will all her heart. May God give you rich and abundant blessings to you and your dear ones. Hugs and kisses, Jessi, with much love from Anahi"
"Anahi thanks you for all your letters and coloring books, they are nice. Thank you for the huge love you have for my family. We want to thank you and we thank God for having you in our path. Anahi has your picture in her room. She wants to meet you, give you hugs and kisses. She is very loving."
We got an updated picture of Anahi last fall!
"Anahi is happy because she passed her 1st grade with 95%, she is in the honor roll and she is heading to 2nd grade. Anahi says she loves to read Bible stories. She says you both have something in common: reading."
