I hate to always be coming here with questions, but I was looking back at the letters I have received, and I noticed it's been at least 6 months since Andres or Jhonathan sent me a letter. I write once or twice a month to my own three, and then I also write to my boyfriend's sponsor child (who has not received a letter since February either).

Andres, in Mexico, sent me one in January and then another one in March so I was thinking the time inbetween letters, to Mexico at least, to be fairly quick. I know some centers only write a few times a year, but I was just curious if other sponsors have the same waiting time or if it just depends on the location? Thanks so much!

Hi Sarah! I am so sorry you've had to wait so long for another letter from these children! Basically, it is not normal to go six months without a letter. If you are writing to your children (It looks like you are a wonderful letter writer! Thank you!) you should receive a letter at least every two to six months. I'm not sure if you are just wanting some reassurance from other sponsors about your experience. It looks like the last sent letters we sent you from Jhonathan and Andres was in late April 2014 so we would need to wait until October 23 to check on your children in regards to lack of correspondence.

Okay thank you! I kind of wonder about Andres' letters since I did have the two arrive within a couple months of each other. Unless maybe one went through extra quality checks or something. But thanks for checking!! I appreciate that :) hopefully I will be getting one or both soon!
