Review for Unbound, Kansas City, KS, USA
My second niece Bridgette has the most beautiful heart. It's because of her that I befriended Elizabeth from Ecuador through Unbound about six years ago.
When I lived closer, I used to go to the same parish as Bridgette, my older sister and her family. One day at Mass, a priest from Unbound was speaking of the children and elders needing help. Bridgette and I were looking at the photos after Mass and she asked me if I would let her help me pick out "my child." (How can you say "no" to a sweet then eight-year-old niece? I've never learned how :-)).
Bridgee thought Elizabeth was a good fit for me because we both had brown eyes and hair, she has the same middle name as her big sis/my goddaughter and she (Bridgee) and Elizabeth are about the same age.
It's been almost six years ago now since I've befriended Elizabeth and it's been such a blessing to exchange letters and photos with her, watch her grow up and succeed, and help her and her family through Unbound. Fellow aunts, be sure to listen to those wise nieces in your lives, especially those with big hearts like Bridgette's :-)
