You are more than welcome to write to your child in their language, but please know this will not make a difference in the time frame for the letter to get to your child. Each letter must go through the translation process, and even if you write in Spanish, there still may be some parts of the letter which need to be slightly edited due to dialects/derivation so your child can fully understand.
