My son, Zion, just turned 8. He knows he is Belizean and we spent summers there in the past but cannot do it anymore due to
life circumstances. Any suggestions for helping him get to know his Belize roots besides visiting? We look at pictures often, especially the ones of his 1, 2, and 3 year old self "riding' the sharks and petting the rays.

Perhaps if you would like to set up a pen pal link with the school here. 8 is a great age for that. Letters and photos could be exchanged.He could make friends and bonds that could last until he was able to come visit. I would love to help.

that would be an awesome way for z. to start to connect in a deeper way than just eating rice and beans occasionally or having the belize flag up in his room. he is currently being homeschooled because we are traveling, so that would be a cool project. can you help me set it up?

I would love to. Would he be writing letters or using a computer. I am not sure about computers at the school, I think they have a few but dont know how or if the kids have much access. I will go tomorrow and talk to them. Do you have a personal email address we can communicate through?

he'll be writing--i'm trying not to let him get too hooked on the computer until he's older. my email is [email protected] thanks for your idea and help.
