I Love Xhuliano

Oh my goodness. I was absolutely shocked today when I saw a letter from Xhuliano in my mailbox. It's only been two weeks since I last heard from him.

I started sponsoring Xhuliano at the end of November. His birthday was shortly after that in December. At the end of December, I sent him some packages of some things as a late birthday present. It seems that he got them! Here's his letter:

Dear my friend Kayla,

I was very happy when I received your gifts. Not only me, but my family too. Stelina is 9 years old and Marsela will be 2 years old soon (April 5th). I want to say thank you to your friend Rosie for always thinking about me. I want to know when your birthday is, so I can send my wishes to you. I like playing football. My best friend is Klevi. I always receive your letters and your presents in time. I liked even the pictures you had sent, especially the one that was made near the sea. It looks exactly like our seaside. I also liked the notebook, the football, the pump, the gloves, the comb, the stickers, the whistle, and the pictures you sent to me. Here, football is the favorite sport and my favorite team is Flamurtari. I am in the fifth grade. I hope you and your family are good. Thank you so much, my friend.


I told him that my friend Rosie is helping me to support him. What a loving boy!
I've only been sponsoring Xhuliano for four months and I've already received five letters from him. I love sponsoring in a recipricol letter country!

Oh my goodness, sometimes my heart just cannot handle all of this love and adorableness.


  1. Wow that is great! My Lysa gets lots of letters from her Jazzy in the Philippines!

    Thanks for sharing.....

    Oh and as for Kees Boer.... God brought him into our path and he connected us with Erik!

    Much love,

    1. I follow your daughter's blog too. Her Jazzy is super cute!

  2. I found your blog from swap-bot. (My profile is rachelcdoyle). I think it's amazing how you sponsor these children. I've thought about doing it for years, much more seriously lately. When I'm ready, can I come to you for advice on where to start? :)


    1. Absolutely you can ask me for advice! I'll be happy to help.

  3. He is such a sweetie! Mail must move more quickly from Albania to be getting so many letters. What fun!


    1. It does move more quickly. World Vision Albania is also a recipricol country. They respond to every letter than you send them.
