It takes 2-3 months for your letter to get to your child and 2-3 months for your child's reply to get to you. Your online letter will be printed off in Colorado, mailed to the country office and translated and then sent along to your child's project.

Just to clarify, it depends upon how often the child's project gets the translated letters from the country office too. Your child's project may be close by and get them frequently whereas other projects are more remote, which means it takes longer for the letters to get there.
