    Help with a short letter please

    We are adopting a young girl in Russia and would like help with a short letter to her:

    "We think of you everyday and keep you in our prayers. We hope to bring you home very soon. How is school going? Are you listening to the English CD's? Here are some pictures of us."

    Thanks for any help you could give. God Bless!

    Congratulations!!!
    I think it is wonderful that you are adopting a child.

    My Russian is not very good, but here is my best try.

    We think of you everyday and keep you in our prayers.
    Мы думаем о тебе каждый день и помним тебя в наших молитвах.

    We hope to bring you home very soon.
    Мы надеемся взять/привести тебя домой очень скоро.

    How is school going?
    "Что идёт в школе?" or maybe "Как дела в школе?"

    Are you listening to the English CD's?
    Ты слушаешь английский компакт-диски?

    Here are some pictures of us.
    Вот - некоторые картины/фото нас.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    It sounds a bit official in Russian, IMHO.
    Kwatts, the most things you've translated are grammatically correct, though i wouldnt say this way.
