I know I’ve went to Dillards before and they said that they can stretch shoes…how small are they?! I would try that!

@ rebekah – I’m sorry that they don’t fit!  As an aside, do you work for Compassion Intl. or sponsor a child through them?  I ask because I sponsor a child with them and my Fiance works for them.

Ugh…so sorry!  I know how frustrating that is!  I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you find a pair that fits and that you like even better!

Spring can order in your shoes – did you ask them if they could order in a bigger size?

What is a sponsor child? Is that like adopting but not bringing them to the states?

@ rebekah – I have not been to see my sponsored child, but I hope to someday.  As part of their perks, Compassion employees get a trip at their 5 year anniversary and 10 year anniversary of working there, and they can bring their spouse.  We are going to try and visit my sponsored child in Nicaragua for his 5 year trip.  I’ve been to Nicaragua before myself and I love it there.  I did some volunteer work with a series of orphanages in Granada.  I can’t wait to go back!

 

@Sarah71710 – Compassion international is a Christian children’s poverty relief organization that matches up sponsors in the developed world with children in the developing world.  A sponsored child is a child that has been accepted into one of Compassion’s in-country projects and has a “sponsor” from the developed world to cover their costs of being in the program.  I pay 30-something dollars a month that covers at least one meal a day at the project, health care, and schooling plus more for my sponsored child.  I like sponsoring though Compassion because they partner with churches in each country they work in and all the project staff are natives to that country (so it doesn’t have that white-man-come-to-save-the-heathens feeling).  The projects have to fit Compassion’s requirements and Compassion provides the monetary support for them through the sponsorships, but it’s not like developed world people coming in and changing their entire way of life.  Sponsorship lasts through essentially the span of their education (as young as 4-5 all the way through when they would graduate from high school or their equivalent).  And we exchange letters so they feel supported spiritually and emotionally, not just monetarily by their developed world sponsor.  It’s not exactly like adopting, the children all still have their own family there, as sponsors we are doing just that “sponsoring them” financially through their education to help them learn the tools they need to get out of poverty.
