In March, David and Judy Dames stepped aboard a plane on their way to Costa Rica.
Judith Bautista is the CFCA project coordinator for Bogota, Colombia, and a CFCA sponsor.

CFCA sponsored children and aging friends enjoy many opportunities to dream of a better future.
Opportunities to dream, however, weren’t readily available for 7-year-old Emerson, until Heather, a 17-year-old from Pennsylvania, became his sponsor.

CFCA sponsor Laurie Chandler recently returned from a visit to Santa Barbara, Honduras, to visit her sponsored friend, Fredy.
Laurie traveled on an individual sponsor visit to meet Fredy and spent some quality time with him and his family.

Sally Steiger is a loving woman who gratefully shares her love with William, her 11-year-old sponsored child from the Philippines, who likes to be called “Yam.”
Sally is a lector at St. Jerome Catholic Church in Newport News, Va., and a retired federal employee with more than 30 years of service.
She is also a talented musician and plays the harmonica, ukulele and keyboard.
Sally achieved all these things without the use of her eyes because she was born blind.
