Souleymane Yaméogo from Burkina Faso
Last but certainly not least is Souleymane Yaméogo from Burkina Faso. Souleymane is just 7 years old. We have sponsored him since April 2012. I picked Souleymane to sponsor last year because he is one of 10 children. I think if there is anyone who probably needs attention and to learn how special they are it is this little fellow. He has shared that his favorite hero is Jesus (don't you just love that). And he likes many of the typical things that boys his age enjoy like football and playing with his friends. This is a new picture of Soleymane and it looks like they have stuck him in one of his siblings outfits for the picture (not uncommon). He also looks so sad. I do have another picture of him that came as a thank you for a gift we sent which is a much better picture. These poor kids must just hate having their picture taken because we are definitely not seeing any smiles when we get picture updates. The sad faces just make you want to give them a big hug. We actually received 8 letters from Souleymane in 2012 with the help of his project translators.
