is Smith Akanyijuka UG071600674 a girl or a boy? We won't change our sponsorship, but I'd asked for a girl - and he or she is wearing a dress and girls sandles.

Sue, I am so sorry about the confusion with this child's gender. I am sending an inquiry to our country office in Uganda to verify the information we have on this child's profile. Once that is done, we will update it with the correct information and gender for you! It can take up to eight weeks for us to receive the response from our Uganda office.

Hi Sue. I am pretty basic with my first letter. I briefly tell my name and where I live. I like to include a simple map and a photo of myself. Yes, I did mention the child's photo, but you could still mention something about their smile (if appropriate) or where you put their photo. In my 2nd letter I told about my family and asked questions about my child's family - their namesĀ andĀ ages of the siblings. In my 3rd letter, I told more about myself and asked the child about their interests. Of course, you can share a Bible verse, tell them how you are praying for them, let them know you are eager to hear from them, etc. I hope you and your child develop a wonderful relationship!

You could always go to the blog and look up questions to ask or ask them about their country and what they want to be when they grow up
