A message from Mona

Good Morning,

I greet all of you with a warm handshake. I write from the land of the Lakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. We have had a spell of arctic air and it is freezing cold (-18 yesterday). We warmed up a degree today - yeah!!

My children are sponsored by Shelly and Carol.... they have been a great help to our family.

I am the mother of one biological son, an adopted son and the mother to three nephews and one niece. I love the children so much. I knew Tunkashila (grandfather) would bless me with lots of children. We struggle at times but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I feel blessed to have warmth during these cold days. The other day, we took wood out to a family and they were burning old rummage clothes, so I know we are blessed to have warmth during these cold days.

May Tunkashila bless the program and its people for all the help they provide throughout Lakota Country!!!!

Doksa Ake!!
