Young people who rock
Found this lovely girl on CNN.com. She was abandoned by her parents in Russia when she was only eight years old. Her name is Tanya Poteet. She is 18 years old now and lives with her adopted family in St. Louis. When she was in the orphanage, she received a gift from Operation Christmas Child. Now she volunteers for OCC and just got back from Quito, Ecuador delivering shoe box gifts to kids in orphanages there.To check out the full story click here. The video interview is here.
I am so encouraged when I hear about young people who are passionate about things that really matter.
