Take time today to write your sponsored child! Your letters will establish a special relationship between you and the child you sponsor.
Ms. Abbi Crutchfield,
How are you doing? Praise God I am fine. Thank you so much for all your support to me. Happy New Year and Merry Christmas. I got your letter and 2 photos. I am so happy. I am doing well and I am happy. My family is also happy. Bye for now.
Keep your letters simple. Emphasize things you have in common.
Thank you for writing me! You sound very happy. I am happy too.
Send pictures of yourself and your family.
Here is another picture of my sister. People say we look alike. Here is my mother. She is white like the people who send you my letters. Some people in America think I am from Ethiopia, but you probably don't think I look like anyone you know.
Send postcards of where you live and places you've visited.
Here is a postcard of my home state: Indiana. You are looking at a theme park called Indiana Beach. A theme park is a place for people to eat food that is bad for them and get on rides that may kill them. It is fun.
Flat paper items are the only things we can forward. Items such as jewelry are usually confiscated by customs officials in other countries.
Please enjoy these stickers shaped like fruit. They are called "scratch-n-sniff", and are made of chemicals to simulate the smell of food. You may want to, but you should not eat them. In America we are obsessed with food. Our soap, shampoo and lotion smells like fruits and spices and chocolate. We make candles that smell like food too. We don't use candles for light anymore. We use them for decor. I am running out of room on my card.
Please do not send sexually explicit materials or comments.
Remember I told you I am getting married to a man named Luke? We look forward to being married because then we will have more time to...write lots of letters and smell lots of stickers together. I am happy.
Ms. Abbi Crutchfield
