Hello dearest sponsor! I hope that you enjoy reading my letter and that you are doing well. The reason that I am writing is that I want you to know a little about me. I live with My siblings and I live with my grandmother and my aunt. My grandmother works as a waitress and she is the one who sacrifices and strives hard to provide for us. Thanks to God, I am in good health. I am studying in an all girl’s school called Manuel Cabral. I have a lot of friends that I play with at recess. We play jump rope, tag, and hide-and-seek. At home, I help with the household duties such as sweeping and picking up shoes. One time, my mother took us to Port San Jose and we had a wonderful time.
I enjoyed seeing all of the waves in the sea. It was really beautiful. We attend church and I really enjoy the dances in my church. When I grow up, I would like to be a hairdresser because I want to cut and color hair and do different kinds of hairstyles. I would like to ask you to pray for my family and especially for my grandmother. I say goodbye to you with much love hoping to meet you one day.
Blessings and much love,
Amy Hanay Polanco Chavez
