My dear cousin, I send you this letter even though I haven’t had the honor of meeting you. I want to tell you that I beg God to heal me, because

I’m ill in my development There's something wrong with my development. I think that that’s not it, I think there are other things wrong, because I feel a lot of things. The doctors say that I need a lot of care, and they have seen me healed me but I don’t heal haven't received medical attention because my dad can’t afford it. We are many and my dad spends a lot to feed us, because everything is very expensive. We barely have enough to eat and I sometimes feel sad because I don’t know what to do because I’m ill and now my dad is so far behind in his financial obligations and has also been ill. I also tell you to please send me the portrait of the babies, so that I can see them meet them. Don’t forget to send it so I can see them. I’m starting fourth grade and I don’t have money to buy my books or the school supplies I need   I would like, even though it’s embarrassing to tell you, but I set that embarrassment to the side, I would like to ask you to help me with something some money to have everything ready before I start school

Receive regards from all my siblings, from Candi and Lily, and from Chedez and Josecito, and from my mom and my dad, and from me receive the finest regards from Guadalupe Flemate Medrano

Answer me soon, don’t forget
