It has been about three months since I have gotten a letter from my child. Typically I would get one every month. What’s going on? I have replied with two letters since beginning of November.

Hi Alyssa! I am so sorry for the longer than normal wait time for your child's next letter. I don't w ant you to be worried about your child because we are actually still in the normal time range for hearing from your kiddo. Typically, it can take several months to hear from your child once you write a reply letter to them. Once the child receives  your letter, he or she has 60 days to write a reply letter to be delivered for processing at the national office. Since you wrote in November and the letter was probably delivered around December, your child still has plenty of time to write a reply to you. The holidays in the past few months may be adding to the wait you are experiencing. I know its hard to wait, but I am sure you will hear from your kiddo soon!
