I JUST became a sponsor and am waiting to receive the initial information via snail mail. I was wondering if I can write to my child now (I noticed that I can do this through Compassion's website) or is it better to wait until I receive the information from Compassion in the mail? Thank you for any suggestions! I'm so excited. :)

I sponsored at an event at the end of October and got a package with information to send to the child, so sent off my first letter, photos, puzzle page before I even got a sponsor number! (i plastered the child number all over everything knowing this might be an issue)  I do warn: It took a while to show up in the account (even after I got a sponsor number and set up the account) I believe my second letter, written online, may actually have been translated before the first one. So she's going to get a chatty letter before she gets my photo and introduction information... Oh well. It will all work in the end.  I sponsored a second child online last night and she has not showed up on my account yet. I am putting together a letter and going to wait the 15 days until the packet arrives so her introduction letter might actually get to her first.
