Afoyo Matek, Apiyo Nancy!

Thank you so much for the beautiful hat you made me, I love it! I had the honor of visiting Lacor hospital in Gulu, Uganda this past Summer. I am a nursing student and I went with my nursing school from the USA. Uganda is such a beautiful country and I miss it very much. You are my namesake. While in Uganda I recieved my Acholi name, Apiyo! My twin sister and I both went to Uganda together and we had fun introducing ourselves as Apiyo and Acen. God bless you and your family. You are very beautiful and are doing an amazing thing for your family. God bless!

I just knew I had to have this beanie when I saw it online at zumiez. When it arrived today I was extra excited. What makes this beanie so special to me is that it was made by you, Apiyo Nancy. I wanted to write you and tell you thank you for making this. Eager to gain some insight into the life of the person who made this special beanie, I hurried to jump online and read what I could here on krochetkids.org. I hope that your dreams and wishes come true. I want you to know Apiyo that each and every time I wear my hat I will think of you and your family. I send my love, thoughts, and prayers to you and your family and I will continue to look for products made by you. Thanks Apiyo! :)
