My Doll

By Joyce, 3rd Grade

My doll is called Francesca. She is four years old. She lost her family then Arna took her and went with her to her house. One day Arna decided to come with Francesca to Kibera School for Girls and meet a new friend. That’s how she came and met me. She is beautiful and polite. I like her very much.

I met friend outside hear our clinic. I saw her shivering, very hungry and she was crying. She told me that she is feeling cold and hungry. I took her to our class and covered her with my sweater, than I gave her food. I love her very much and she loves me too. I love her because she has good abilities. We feel happy together and we appreciate each other.

She is a great doll and kind. On Sunday, we went to church and saw many things and from there we went to the store and we bought a lot of things like shoes, clothes, etc. We also bought some food like eggs, kales, fruits, and snacks. We went home, cooked and ate then we took a small nap. I never forget my adventure with Francesca. She is a happy girl and likes playing a lot.
