Heidi's sponsor kid

Last week I went to visit my cousin Heidi's sponsor kid. So we drove for
about 30 minutes and then walked up a huge hill for another 15 minutes - and
he lived right on the top of the hill. As we were all catching our breathe,
we had the warmest welcome from his family! David is the oldest of 8
children! His mother cares for all of them and his father recently took off
from the family- nowhere to be seen. David is 11 years old and this is his
first year at our school. He is deaf and schools in his area never provided
the opportunity to learn sign language. So, now he is learning how to sign
and communicate with his teacher, family and friends!
