Half a month has gone by and I haven’t written anything about fairness.

Life is not always fair and sometimes people, animals and even our planet live unfair situations that cause great pain.

In previous blogs I have written about how fortunate you are and how grateful you must be for all the blessings in your life. I have shown you videos of children who are less fortunate. Together we have contributed to the children in  Syria. Many of you helped the children at Casa Hogar, etc.

Now, on behalf of all of you and all of us at British American Institute I have adopted a chimp named LUCY. She is an orphan who now lives at a sanctuary in Liberia, Africa.Screen Shot 2019-03-17 at 9.54.30 PM

Life was not fair to Lucy. She was kidnapped from her mother when she was one or two weeks old,  and for 4 to 5 months she was severely malnourished. She was very traumatized and had a hard time letting go of the human who had her.

Fortunately, this person dropped her off at the Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue Sanctuary in Monrovia, Liberia in Africa  and there she was instantly taken care of. It took several days for her to finally trust  her new family, and now she is a very happy and loving chimp.

She has a fantastic sense of humor and is always playing jokes on her human moms. Lucy is always inventing new games and exploring her environment. She is very loving and now feels safe enough she trusts all the persons in the sanctuary.

So, you see, even though life was not fair to Lucy, it was only for a short time. Things have a way of working out, especially if there are people like you and me who really care about our world, our animals, our people.

The money I donated on behalf of all of us will help pay for her food and care.

So, allow me to  introduce to you a new sister: LUCY!

    Miss Lilian,
    Thank you so much for doing this. I am gladly surprised to see how much this blog impacted my students. They showed how much they have grown through the year, becoming more sensitive, less focused on themselves. I believe making our children aware of how kind or unkind we are to animals will create positive change.

    Welcome to our family, Lucy!

    We send our love, Miss Lilian. Hope to see you soon!

    Miss Lillian:

    Hope the weather is better and you are able to enjoy the outdoors. We are having beautiful sunny weather.

    The students are thrilled to have a “sister” their comments were: AWWWWW, OHHHHHHHH, SO CUTE. They are so happy to be part of this “act of kindness” and will be waiting for new pictures.

    They did not know that these kind of actions can be done by anyone. They want to know more about the program.

    See you soon!

    We now all know about “adopting animals”. Thank you for adopting Lucy. Some of the class want to know if Lucy can come live with them, now that she is adopted.
