A Letter from Shifchatyah to her friend, Nechonah
A life without love is lonely,
A life without hope is cruel,
A life without trust is empty,
but a life without good friends is no longer life.
How are you doing? I am doing o.k. I know it is not very easy for you right now, but endure. Our Father has a great plan for us.
Are you alone right now? Are you in a foster family or an orphanage?
I just want to let you know that I appreciate you for enduring. We were always good friends and we always liked each other. Now it is very different — through the use of the Jugendamt we don’t see each other anymore.
Isn’t it true, that a life without parents and good friends is no longer life? Often I think of the nice times we had together going swimming or milking goats together…
I wish we could just live together. We need to endure. I love you sooooooooooooooooo much! I miss you very, very much.
Your best friend forever,
P.S. I try everything so that I could visit you.
Shifchatyah’s legal name is Chassidah. She is part of the Markeli family.
