Marie…she’s an ordinary Filipina Girl. ‘Yon bang batang mahilig maglaro at siyempre, mahilig kumanta.
Parang ako, when I was still young.

Malapit na ang birthday niya, sa December 1, and she’ll be turning 11. But she looks smaller sa kanyang age, even if Mommy Joyce always gives her milk and food.

She’s a thoughtful, responsible little girl. After school hours, she’s spending her time with Mommy Joyce, making assignments, learning the household chores. She loves her family so much, that she wants to bring her other brothers and sisters some food, like what Mommy Joyce sometimes cook.

She is one of the children that Mommy Joyce of DF Iskolars is helping. It’s really a blessing from God, that Mommy Joyce takes care of her always, together with other children; that she regularly goes to school, with correct uniforms and, of course, baon.

She is a charming sweet Girl. She likes hugs, as if she likes to feel the love in one’s heart. But she won’t give a hug when she’s still “mamos” and “amoy pawis”. hahaha  I can still remember her hugs when I first met her. I love that girl…

Now she’s in Grade 4. Time flies!

On your birthday, Marie, I wish that all your dreams, big and small, will come true. I hope, you’ll be finishing school until college. I’ll be very happy for all your success. I hope to see you once again, and feel again your embrace.

Happy Birthday, Marie. Stay as Sweet as you are now. Be good and kind. Sana ang mga natututuhan mo kay Mommy Joyce ay iyong ibigay din sa ibang mga bata. Sana paglaki mo, gawin mo din ang kabutihang ito sa ibang bata, upang sila man ay magkaroon din ng magandang buhay.

Sana, maraming bata ang tulad ni Marie; na sa kabila ng kahirapan ay nananatiling masayahin at patuloy na nagsisikap para magkaroon ng magandang kinabukasan.

 The Definitely Filipino Kalakal Iskolars is on its 6th year this December. Friends help support former streetkids’ schooling.
