I guess it depends on your child! I try to limit myself to 1-2 letters a month since mail day is typically once a month at the centers. But if your child loves a pile of letters each mail day, then I guess you can't write too many!
Hi Kecia! Welcome to the Compassion family! Thank you so much for taking several opportunities to write to your new sponsored child, Dereck, this month. We can tell you are excited to get to know him :). Compassion suggests writing to the children about once a month because we do want the children to receive consistent letters from the sponsors, but we also don't want to overwhelm both the translators or the children. The children do reply to your letters, and it can cause them to feel a little overwhelmed when they receive a huge pile of letters every month from their sponsor that they need to reply to. That being said, I think Derek will be very happy to receive the letters that you have sent him this month, and I am so happy to hear that you have been enjoying the app :)! I know you mentioned it's been a little silent in the way of letters coming back to you. Dereck will be writing to you, and he probably has found out that you have sponsored him now. It can take up to four months to receive the first letter from your child after you begin the sponsorship, but I think that will be a very welcome first letter from Dereck when it does arrive!
