Hi, I'm having trouble uploading more than one page of a letter using the "Upload" feature of the letter composer. How do I tell it I have a second page I need to upload? I wanted to fill out my introduction letter to my child that was mailed to me (it's a front & back). I scanned it as two images, but the uploader only gives me the option to upload one image. What am I supposed to do about the back page?

Click Next.
Click "Add a Photo Page"
Upload the second page on the first line "Choose a Photo"  IF you don't upload any other photos on that page, it will become the second page of the letter

You can click Add a Photo Page again to make a third page to the letter, or t attach a family picture.

That's how you do it.

Oh good, thank you Sarah for your help! I wanted to add one or two family photos, which was why I didn't think I could use the "Choose a Photo" feature for the second page. I didn't realize I could add a third page for family photos. Thank you so much!

THere are two total Add Photo Pages you can add. So you could send a two page letter and then attach the second photo page to put your family photos on (You can put up to 5 images on a Photo page.)

If you have more photos than that, you've got the start of your next Letter! Start another letter and add more photos to it. It is perfectly fine (and even recommended) to write another letter before you get a response to the first.  I try to send a letter every three weeks to assure that my child has a letter waiting for them every time there is a mail call, even if something gums up in the translation process.

Wonderful!!! So how often do they have letter calls? Is it a standard amount of time across locations?

Hi Lindsey, 
It does vary from center to center. Each country office prints the letters for each center in that country. However, some of our centers must be reached by more difficult means like boat or camel, so those letters will take a bit longer than those that are close by and easy to deliver to. :)
