Thanks for your respond. She will be coming on the 5th of August and leave on the 7th December, 2013. Also we are going to make full payment for the 4 months, I don't want Yin to have money problem when she is with you. Mr.Walter Kamara will handle the payment for us since he reside in Alberta-Canada. Mr.Walter is a long time family friend. I have contacted him about Yin moving to US for her studies, he said its a nice idea and promised to help us out with the arrangement. Initially, I wanted to send Yin to Mr. Walter's home in Alberta-Canada but since his going through a divorce, I thought it's not right to send her there and he and his wife understands very well and promised to assist us out. Kindly let me know what your price is like for 2 meals (Breakfast and Dinner), My main worry is for my daughter to stay with a good lovely home. I hope your home will provide her the kind of atmosphere she need.
God has helped me to raise Yin up in His way so she is a nice young girl and you will love her I assure you. She will be going to a language school,there are two schools which she's presently talking with but I have also asked her that am going to seek for your advice for us on any good school close to your home, Can you help her to enroll when she comes over? Please note that her English speaking is very slow and for this I allowed her to visit my step-sister in England, I want her English to improve a bite before coming to your home. She will move from England to your home I pray you will assist her.
Yin is 19 years old. Here in China if you can speak and write English you will have a very good job as the economy is growing everyday . I want Yin to be ready, and to give her my best now because she is all I have.
I await your reply.
