Hi Rindie, I am not able to change the first name on the account because of IRS requirements. If you would like me to, I can add Seth on to the account for you. Then the name would read, Seth
and Rindie Cook Hawkins. If Seth is the one corresponding with your sponsored child, I can create an account for him and link him as the correspondent for you. If Seth is taking over the sponsorship completely, I can create an account for him and then move the sponsored child to his account for you. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

Thank you! Adding him would be fine. Rindie is a nickname, so I wasn’t sure how that would work with official documents. Also, Rindie is misspelled on the account (it currently says RINDLE).

Rindie, I apologize for the misspelling! I have corrected your name to Rindie and added Seth's name so that it now reads Seth and Rindie Hawkins. Thank you so much for your partnership!
