My Little Thasanee Srisuksankeere

Well, I was just remembering that me and the family sang happy birthday to our Thasanne yesterday at dinner. She is our "daughter" that we sponser through compassion international. She lives in Thailand and just had her 7th birthday today (or yesterday really because they are 12 hours ahead of us)'s confusing. Anyhow, her birthday is September 11th, let's just put it that way! : ) The girls and I love sending her letters, pictures and photos, and getting letters from her from the other side of the world is awesome as well. I would put up her picture but I can't grab it off their website. It is protected for security purposes. But, I did put some info on her below, so that if you think of it you can pray for her too.....and sing happy birthday to her too! Good night! And Good afternoon Thasanee!!!!
