Adam and I sponsor a child in Sri Lanka via the charity Plan UK. You are in encourage to write to the child, and they, or in our case, his Mother, writes back. However, given the expense of translating your letter and transporting to ‘your’ child, it’s best to send a letter every six months or so.
Last week I realised that I had written for over a year. The Plan website allows you to send a letter online, so I logged on and set to. I then went blank. How to sum up the last year. It would be hard enough when writing to a friend. I wrote about our kitchen extension; our holiday in SanDiego; and uploaded a photograph of Adam (above).
In the end, it’s the contact that’s important, but I feel a bit dissatisfied.
