Present Surprise!

Dayana lives in El Salvador. She loves to receive gifts for Christmas “because they are pretty and that makes [her] happy.” Some children who live in poverty, like Dayana does, don’t receive presents or new toys because their parents can’t afford them. But Dayana and other sponsored children do! “In the Compassion center, I get a Christmas gift every year,” Dayana says.

“Time for presents,” Dayana’s parents called,
But where was Dayana?
Under chairs her parents crawled.
“Oh, where is Dayana?”
Now, where is she, they all ask me,
“What happened to Dayana?”
“Open up the big, big, box,” I gleefully sing,
But then the box sprang open with a delightful little ring.
Oh, there is Dayana!

Maiya, 12 Kingston, Ontario
