Hello dearest sponsor! It makes me happy to be able to say hello to you hoping that you are doing well. I want to tell you that I live with my parents and my siblings. My father works painting houses and other buildings, and my mother takes care of our home. I have problems with my speech and hearing. My mother takes me to speech therapy at the hospital. When I am sick, she takes me to the medical clinic at the feeding program. It is a big help for my family. At home, I help my mother with the chores and then we work on my therapies. I am still not going to school, but God willing, I will go next year. I have been to some pools with my family and it was a wonderful time for us.
When I grow up, I want to be a police officer or a firefighter. I like to play soccer and toy cars with my friends. Currently, my family does not attend a church. When we have problems at home, my parents talk and pray for God to help us. I ask you to pray for my hearing and speech problems. I say goodbye to you for now asking God to pour blessings over you wherever you are. I send you a big hug.
Blessings and much love,
Erick David Jolan Miranda
