When I grew healthy, I was moved into house number 6. I live here with 30 other children. None of us have families. I have lots of friends and we play together and have fun. I am happy, as I am never hungry any more. My belly is not so big now. I used to worry in case they ran out of food but I get rice every day. I smile lots because I know I am lucky. I get to go to school for 3 hours a day and my teacher tells me I am a good learner. I don’t know whether my family were good learners but my teacher says if my parents could see me now they would be proud of me.
One day I hope to work in this orphanage. Some of the big children say they can’t wait to escape here when they are big. But I hear stories about other children who get hurt and starve to death. I want to rescue them just like I was rescued. I know how afraid they are. They think no one will love them because they are not in a real family.
I hope you can read my writing. I am glad you have decided to sponsor me. You are giving me a happy future and I will be able to bring happiness to other children. I hope that I make you feel proud of me. Please tell your friends to do child sponsorship too so that other children in my orphanage will feel safe and loved just like me.
Love from your special girl, Grace.
