8 year old looking for a penpal

I have an 8 year old son who is dying for a friend. He was born with Rhetinoblastoma and had both eyes removed due to the cancer. he is dying to have a friend like his big brother who has his vision. if there is anyone out there that would like to be his friend and email him he would really like that. He is very good at typing on the computer and has jaws so he can read your emails and respond to them.. Thank you

I would love to make friends with your son too!! I am 25 years old and my name is Jennifer. I am visually impaired too but love to sit in front of my computer and talk to my friends and love making new ones. So I would love to make friends with your son and be a good friend to him. I have a 9 year old younger brother and he is my best friend!!

Re:8 year old looking for a penpal



Another option would be going to our sister site called FamilyConnect at www.familyconnect.org. You can interact with parents and easily find a younger pen pal through their families (if that is what you are looking for). There are a number of message boards there aimed at parents and families. Parents share info about their children and such. Check it out!

I hope you have a great day! Good luck and if you need more help connecting with someone, we can try to help.

Sincerely,

Re:8 year old looking for a penpal



I am also a mother of an 8 year old. My name is melyssa. It sounds like you had a great response to your post. We were surfing the internet and I googled: "find penpal for 8 year old" and we found your post. If your son is still interested please reply. I'm not interested in giving my personal email over the internet unless it is secure. Any ideas on how we can communicate? Thanks and keep in touch!
