G and I received our first letter from Maraka. She had drawn a little picture on it…very sweet. It was written for her by someone, perhaps in the community. The handwriting and grammar were obviously of someone whose first language is not English. It was wonderful and we’re so excited! I’m going to write back to her soon and send some stickers. I wish we were allowed to send gifts, but they say it makes the other children who don’t get any feel bad. She’s 8 years old…what a cutiepatootie.

G and I received a letter in the mail to tell us that the girl we sponsored lives in Kenya, her name is Maraka, and she’s 8 years old. I’ve always wanted to do this, and I hope we are helping her and her community in some way. I’ve mailed my first letter to her, and once it’s translated, maybe she can respond!
