Recently at the LFNKR office we received a packet of letters from our North Korean foster children in China, telling us about their school achievements. Clearly some of these children are gifted students, and it would be a tragic waste if they were denied an education. We are delighted that they are doing well and learning very rapidly. It is my hope that the happiness in their lives can continue.
Note: To assure the children's safety, the names on their letters are covered in the photos. All names are represented by initials only.
Here is a typical letter.

I thank my foster parents for supporting me. I will study harder.
