Hello. I thought I would tell of a true story about Pen Pals in my life and how it can lead to something great to happen. I have to keep it short or this would turn into a Novel, but I will try to get the details into it so you could get the story.
I was 15 years old and very into sports. An older couple watching my football team do practice at the city park started a friendship with me, and asked if I would desire to be Pen Pals with one of their adopted children that live in Belize. I agreed, and over the years kept in contact with a few of the 40 children that this older couple had lawfully adopted that lived in a compound type housing facility in Belize.
As time passed along, so did this older couple, and things sort of went bad for the funding needed to keep the compound running. Some of the children that lived there, had grown, attended colleges and became some what a success and did what they could to keep the compound going for the newer young children that needed a home.
As an adult, I was able to visit the compound and later able to rebuild it and I am now the legal guardian of all the children that live there and love being able to help give input into their lives.
In short, to have a Pen Pal can possibly make things come along that is the most special part of a person's life ever.
