Keeping in Touch

I’ve been really busy over the last five months moving out of a home I’ve lived in for almost thirty years. Although I try to write to each child once monthly, I feel I’ve just not had/taken the time I normally have to stay in good communications with each of them. When I receive a sweet letter from one of them, it is a tangible reminder of how important it is to consistently write to each child.

Happy New Year!

Yes, that is the title of this post dated June 13! That’s because I just received a letter from Gabriela N dated January 8 of this year. The very fact that it took so long for me to receive this letter shows just how far removed Gabriela N is from the connected world most of us live in. I will accept Gabriela N’s greeting as a wish for the rest of 2016!

Letter from Ecuador

I received a letter from Gabriela J today. Because of the time it takes to get to me from Ecuador, it was actually written in March. I hope and pray that Gabriela J is well after the devastating earthquake. I know that Compassion has given some sad news regarding a few of the children and their families. Gabriela J ended her letter this way —

“Well I say goodbye with a huge hug. May God bless you and your family. Thank you for the letter. I hope you are in good health. May God always protect you.”

I also recently received an updated photo of Gabriela J. Hasn’t she grown?
