|my first photo of Aprila|
Thankful to be able to check the mail (I have a couple pen-pals in the US) after coming home from camping, I saw a little package. How could I wait to open it until we unpacked?! So I may have torn into it and left my sister to bring stuff in. ;)
She started back at me. Kartini (she now likes to be called Aprila) from Indonesia was just precious! I fell in love with her then. Once we finally unpacked, I took the packet upstairs to my room. I read every word and wrote my first letter. I didn't quite know what to say, but I wrote anyway!
She was sent to me from God and my life has been changed because of her. Thus I call her my angel. She's just turned ten years old, and I can't imagine life without her!
Well, after her first letter came (surprisingly right after another camping trip!), I was hooked.
Stay tuned for Part 3: I Want a Friend
