Thank you very much for allowing us to take a short glimpses into
your lives. Even though we did not get to spend much time with you (one half
day in Sept '06 and one day at Matabungkay Beach 5 days ago) you all left a
big impression on us. We have never met such friendly, happy and sweet
children before, who have met us with so much natural openness. From the
very first moment we have taken them into our hearts. It is good to know
that these children are so well looked after and that these are people who
take such good care of them with so much love and dedication.
We will never forget you and wish you the very, very best for
the future. We hope very much that we will see all of you again.
Let's keep in touch

Dear Brother Luis
Thank you for the hope and gifts you give these children. May
they grow in wisdom with the knowledge that they can make a peaceful and
joyful family. May they also remember you in their prayers and songs.

Thank you Friendship Home for a wonderful
experience. Don't ever change, what you are doing for these
kids is wonderful. You all will always keep a warm place in
my heart. I hope I'll get to visit someday again. I hope I
helped at least a little ... Thank you

Dear "family" at Friendship Home.
The most beautiful place in Manila for me is right
there on Espiritu Street with you. You have share with me
your enchanting smiles, your lyrical voices, your delightful
laughter, along with many a confused look. Bro. Luis told me
that you'd steal my heart. You didn't! I happily gave it
away piece by piece, week by week but somehow you made it
grow back bigger and stronger than it ever was. I will
always think of you and wish that you find something you
love to do and that you are brave enough to do it. Bro. Luis
has, I know.
I will miss each and everyone of you!

I speak much slower on paper.
