First Letter from Precious

Naptime has allowed me to scan in our first letter from Precious and a drawing she sent.

I was told that the part about her being “used to red and white clothes” is probably a reference to her school uniform.  The translations can be different and while English is the general language of Ghana, there are different dialects in different regions. Also, we were initially told that she lives with her Grandmother, but that living situations can change from month to month with the houses being so flimsy and different times of the year being  harder to survive.  Sometimes the children are passed from family member to family member.
