I recently received a letter from a child I sponsor in Burkina Faso. In her letter, she mentioned that her father was planning to take a second wife and her mother disagrees and is sad. I am not sure how to respond to this in my letter back to her. While I disagree with this, I don't want to cause any issues within the family, and yet is is concerning this child enough to ask me for my opinion and prayers, I don't just want to not address it. Any suggestions?
I'm not staff but I think in that case I say something like "I'm sorry to hear about the situation with your parents. I pray that they are able to work it out and that your mother will be happy again, I also pray for you that you will not feel discouraged by their disagreement."
