Hello, dear sister Edith,

Wow, you are one lifesaver! I am so glad you were able to notice this woman in her sadness. Who knows if you didn't stop to talk to her, she might be on her way to ending her life.

You are a she-ro, dear. Your questions are valid, though. How many daughters are feeling that way? How many are there women like you who are ready to comfort and lend a helping hand?

I hope the crisis in Cameroon ends ASAP. Thank you for sharing this story. I pray that she will find peace of mind and a good support system.

Have a great day!

Dear sister,
Thanks very much for standing with her. I sure do as well. Was wondering why will the parents run away and leave their kid behind?
Did they went away because of crises in your country? Is she the only kid of her parents?

Glad you were a source of hoe for her. So what next? I guess she will now be looking up to you.
Thanks for sharing to inspired.
Hugs

A problem shared is half solved indeed. Thank you for being a shoulder for her to cry on. In that moment, you played the role of her parents. You provided comfort when she needed it the most. She went to school a bit relief, and with hope. May God continue to give you the strength, resources, and wisdom to be there for all who cross your path in need.
