On November 1st, I blogged about Moray in South Africa who needed to connect with some people who could help her!
Well, my good friend Karyn Romeis (from the UK) had some contacts and this is the message I received today from Moray. (With names taken out.)
Thank you so much for helping me out. I have been put in touch with **name removed** who lives in Pietermaritzburg, about an hour’s drive from Durban, where I live. [She] was so accommodating and had material that I have been able to use and adapt to our special circumstances. We are getting along like a house on fire and should have everything completed by the end of this week. Something that initially looked like an insurmountable obstacle has suddenly become achievable. [She] also runs a marvelous phonics programme which I have discussed with our remedial teacher. We shall probably introduce something similar in the New Year. We have been given so many wonderful ideas and plenty of inspiration.
Thank you once again for responding to my desperate plea. I am ever so grateful and should you ever think of visiting this part of the world, be assured that you will always be most welcome.
When I corresponded with Moray asking for permission to use an excerpt from her e-mail, she said
Isn't this exciting.
