My darling Camela

Camela is a very smart five year old little girl who sat next to me one morning before school and said, “Life sure feels different living without my brother, and if I had my brother one more day I would be nicer to him.”

This touched me and I didn’t know what to say, so after a short pause I asked her if she wanted to write a story about how she feels about her brother. She Jumped at the idea and immediately took charge, sharing all her personal memories of her brother, and the book was born… Life sure feels different living in a separate house from my brother.

This book has helped Camela tremendously. She is ever so happy with her story and hope to share it every chance she gets with other children throughout the Social Service System.
