My Story

Hello! Good morning! How are you? I hope you are in good health. I send you a cordial greeting and many hugs. Thank God, we are in good health. My father left to go to the United States. Sadly, he does not have communication with us and he does not help us economically. My parents had problems and they separated. My mother established a new relationship with another man. My stepfather is a farmer and he works as a car driver with our neighbor. He covers the home expenses. He is a good person and takes care of me. My mother is a housewife and she weaves typical clothes. She raises hens, pigs and cows. There are three children in the family, but we are from different fathers.

This year, I was in 3rd grade at school but I did not pass it. I help my mother with the chores at home. I like to play dolls with my sister. I like Christmas time because many people light firecrackers. My desire is to continue with my studies. I really liked to attend school. I liked to draw and paint. My family and I attend Church, and I like to sing praises. I live far away from the feeding program, but I like to attend it because it is a great blessing for me. I receive delicious food and my favorite meal is fried chicken. I say goodbye to you for now. May God bless you! Thank you for supporting me because I can receive food, medical attention and a Christmas gift. I hope to hear from you soon.

In Jesus name,

Hermelinda Coj Gutierrez
