SHEVA - A VERY SPECIAL GIRL IN AMERICA

I have an adorable young pen pal in New York whom I like very much! Her name is Sheva, which in Hebrew is Seven, but also means 'Oath'. She is eleven years old. Sheva from the outside: a pretty, tall, slender girl with beautiful, long brown hair, dark eyes, and a lovely smile. Sheva from the inside: Heart - big, sweet, sunny. Soul - soft, rich, sensitive and poetic. Personality - very polite, friendly, outgoing, funny, kind and good willed, and - due to normal development, and trying to find her way and her place in life - rebellious too. Brain: highly functional, very intelligent, scientificly oriented, fast observing, quick absorbing, always questioning, constantly looking for solutions, interested in every thing, be it art, science, fashion, literature, music, you name it.

Sheva has an amazing blog http://www.thelavajewel.blogspot.com/ and to make you go for it and check it out I give you the headlines of some of her posts:

Ladies, I'm speechless! It's just past midnight over here but I'm inclined to go get Sheva out of bed so she can read this! Thank you, Yael, for this wonderful gift and Dawn for your kind words. Sheva's going to be tickled PINK!

אני חייבת לומר שככל שאני ראיתי, הילדה הזו היא בהחלט משהו נדיר. לא רק חכמה ואינטלגנטית, אלא גם רגישה, מלאת הומור ומקסימה.
ג'יל, אני בטוחה שאת יודעת איזה נכס היא ושמחה שגם אנחנו מגלים קצת מזה. נשיקות לשבע!
מחכים לביקור:)
