Adoption and Child Sponsorship

Photo by Compassion InternationalOne of the Compassion International Uganda bloggers named Carlos shared this story. Carlos has an adopted son from Korea and as he was showing a picture of his son, Losiah, to a group of children, a boy named Butewas looked confused.

Carlos: “Do you know what it means to adopt?”

Butewas’ eyes lit up.

Butewas: “Yes”

Carlos: “I adopted Losiah because his mother could not care for him.”

long pause…

Butewas: “Do you think you can adopt me?”

This kind of interaction kills me. Carlos didn’t share how he responded. And I don’t know how you do respond.
