Hi I just received my 1st Correspondance Child! His name is Ahron Lloyd Garidos. Can you send me any previous information/correspondence you have on him? 
Additionally, how should I refer to myself? I know I am not his sponsor, so if anyone could tell me how they address their correspondence children or any suggestions, I appreciate it!

Congrats Bre!!! I'm not staff so I can't send you the information you want. but I have a lot of correspondents. 

I usually introduce myself as their new "correspondent" (I leave off the word "sponsor" to avoid confusion) and depending on the child's age, sometimes explain "You have two sponsors who really love you.  One who pays the support and one who writes to you.  I am the one who writes to you. "

After that first paragraph I usually refer to myself as their "Friend", "Friend from Canada" or "Sister in Christ" (if I know they are Christian)

Hope that helps!
