I received my first letter from Lenial, my 5 year old correspondence child in the Dominican Republic. The letter reads:
May the peace of God is with you and your family. The child Leniel is well and he wishes that you and your family are well too. He thanks you for sponsoring him. I'm five years old and I like to run. In my house live my mom, the baby and me. I like to run. He asks you to pray for his mom and the baby. Do you have a baby?
The last made me chuckle a bit...but this morning I heard Zsa Zsa Gabor is trying to have a baby via a surrogate, so I guess we just believe in miracles. However, in THIS house that ship sailed long ago!
