Leigha,
If you find out info on siblings I'm next in line!  I have Ashli GU 4830011, who has one or two sibs...  I have no clue what gender or age...  Then I have Natacha ID 1270718, and I have No clue...   And finally there's Birungi Barbra UG 1100786 who has siblings or nieces and nephews, but I'm confused!  Cant very well send coloring pages, or stickers that are gender appropriate for the sibs if I don't know genders or ages!   I want to send paper to make paper chains for Christmas for each of the children and if I don't know how many there are it kinda hard!

Usually the info about siblings will come with their first letter.  It should be listed on there.  Compassion doesn't usually have the information.  They can email you the previous picture of your child.  You can't actually send packages, only paper items which the list above that Tammy sent the link to will show which items.

If you can't find the information elsewhere... asking about siblings and telling them about our own families is one fun subject to write to our kids about :)

Leigha, I can tell you're excited about your new sponsorship of Ulises :). I'm so excited that this boy found his way into your heart and I know he's going to be just as excited to get to know more about you! Because his siblings aren't' in our program, we regrettably don't have any information on them but I want to encourage you that, like Debbie kindly mentioned, you'll receive information on his family in the first letter he sends to you! This is a great topic to talk about with your kiddo and you're even welcome to send some family pictures if you'd like to share about your siblings. You received some great feedback from other members of this community but I'm going to send you an email right now also which will include his picture. He's new to our program and so we only have one picture on file, but it's a cute one! :)
