She is 4 years old and lives in Santo Domingo, Domincan Republic. I was hoping she would live in Santiago, which is closer to Puerto Plata where I spend time doing volunteer work. After I looked into the distance, it seems Santo Domingo is only 4 hrs away which is managable. Montreal to Toronto is about 8 hrs. It will also give an excuse to also try and explore more of the DR.
Nelanda has one sister who is 8 years old named Neli and she lives with her parents. The father is a daily worker and the mother is a home maker. Her birthday is January 2nd, and I will be in the DR at that time so I am really hoping that I could arrange to meet her on her birthday!
I'm off to send her a letter along with my Ugandan kids!
