This is the little girl that I am sponsoring through the Foster Parent Plan. She is from Bangoue, Cameroon and is six years old.
Along with handing over my cash, I'm encouraged to write to her - which will be no easy task for me. How do you explain your job when you work is marketing cell phones? Your living arrangement when it's with a guy who's not your husband or brother or father or gay roommate? Your Saturdays when they're spent pole-dancing and watching Laguna Beach?
I'll need to come up with something wholesome and relatable, stat. But what?
