A Sweet Letter from Xhuliano

I love how often Xhuliano writes me. We really have built an amazing relationship. I could have never imagined that I would be so in love with this little boy. It's been a wonderful (almost) year and a half.

Here's the letter:

Dear Kayla,
I was so happy to receive a letter from you again. I felt happiness when I read your letter about me and my family, with your beautiful and sweet words.
Here in our town it has been rainy and quite cold. Now in March the weather has changed a lot and feels like it is summer. I wish you could feel warmer when it will be cold there, my friend. I like playing in snow, what about you, Kayla?
I pray to God everyday for you, just like you pray for me and my family. You pray a lot for my father. he got sick in February for 15 days. I prayed to God for his health and now he is better than before and he wishes you luck in your life and your family too. Also good health for you. My mom and two sisters love you and we keep you in our heart.
I keep doing good at school now. Yes, I like football very much and I was so happy to receive your stickers, thank you. Here, on 7th and 8th March we had Teacher's Day and Mother's Day and I wish you happy Teacher's Day and success. If you were here in my country I would give you a bouquet of flowers just to smell a good fragrance.
My God bless you.


  1. I swear, my Albanian girl's ADP and Xhuliano's ADP must be in sync with mail. I just got three letters from her today and I've noticed that I often get Albanian mail the same day you do! Haha.

    1. That is definitely interesting! I know that the kids can write whenever they want, and they will write when they get a letter from their sponsor. However, I think the main office does collect a bunch of letters so they can bulk mail. that probably explains why we always get letters at the same time.

  2. He is such a precious guy!!!! And I love that he sees your prayers being answered!!! What a wonderful blessing to have such a great relationship with your sponsored kid :)

    1. He sure is a precious guy! His dad has chronic kidney problems and I think about/pray for him a lot. I am so glad that his dad got over his last bout of sickness. I love that Xhuliano notices prayer working and has started praying fervently himself.

  3. Awwwwww, how cute that he wants to give you flowers :) what a sweet young man!

    1. I love that too! He told me the same thing last year. He told me that students always bring their teachers flowers on Teacher's Day. I would love to get flowers from him!
