Children of CHIPROM

I want to start this new (hopefully weekly) section on my blog where I write a profile on each of the kids. There are seventeen children here at CHIPROM (and there are four sets of twins). I want to profile one child (or pair of twins) each Wednesday.

The names and ages of the kids are as follows.
Success - under 0
Favor - 1
Ibukun - 2
Kehinde - 4
Michael & Joshua - 4
Elizabeth & Samuel - 6
Isaiah & Esther - 7
Taiwo & Kehinde - 8
Dupe - 9
Tayo - 9
Joy - 10
Dolapo - 11
Glory - 12
Seun - 13

Today, I want to profile Seun (Shay-oon). She is a beautiful thirteen year old girl who has been such a big help to me as I transition to living in Nigeria. Because she is the oldest in home, she is basically another mother to the children and has to help them with getting ready in the morning as well as getting herself out the door. She is a diligent worker and studies extremely hard. She often asks me several times a day to run over her studies with her so she can be ready for her exams. She is smart, she is beautiful and she has been a great friend to me. Pray that God continues to change her life, and that she continues to be a loud and proud woman of God as she grows older.

  3. This is cool, Sierra. It will be fun every Wednesday to learn a little bit more about each of the children you are working with. Are you starting with the oldest and working your way down to the one year old? Seun looks older than 13. I'm glad you are enjoying her so much
