When award-winning speaker, author, and five-time Billboard singer-songwriter Jennifer Shaw became a Compassion partner, she knew it would change her life, but she had no idea how much.
Jennifer has always been proud to help connect the world’s most vulnerable children with Compassion sponsors who will help change their futures. But it was after one trip with Compassion to Nicaragua—a trip where Jennifer and her husband again met several orphans—that the Shaw family decided they literally had room in their family for more. In addition to sponsorship, they would pursue adoption.
Jennifer’s new children’s book, Dumplings Mean Family, tells the adoption story of her three youngest children from China. The family learned to make dumplings together to help the kids feel more at home.
But the book also offers its young readers the chance to help children right now! By partnering with Compassion, Dumplings Mean Family is shining a spotlight on children who are navigating difficult circumstances, inviting families everywhere to give back by sponsoring a child and helping change their future as well.
For only $38 per month, your family can literally change a life. You can also write back and forth with your child (Compassion will translate for you), which can be an amazing way to share your love with a child in need while learning about another part of the world.
The need is so great. Do you have room in your family for one more?
