Good morning Sheiladawn, 
Thank you so much for your wonderful desire to send your sweet child a Bible. Please know that all Compassion children have access to age appropriate Bibles. This means that your child may or may not have a Bible at home, but they do have access to one at the Compassion center. In order to know if your child has one at home, you would need to ask your child through your next child letter. If you do find out that your child would like to have a Bible at home, you will need to send a donation for this Bible via a child or family gift, rather than sending this physically. 
In general, you will not be able to send any gifts physically, rather you may do that through sending a monetary gift through Compassion. You may give two child gifts each year in the amount of $10-$100, and you may send gifts to the family of $25 to $1,000 (not to exceed $1,000 each year). The local Compassion staff will meet with the family when the gift is delivered to help them decide how the money should be spent and guide them in using the money wisely. Please know that you are welcome to also send a recommendation of what you would like your gift money used for, but if the family receives the money and decides they have a better use for the funds, we do allow them to make that decision, as this will ensure they get exactly what they need most! I hope this is helpful! Please let us know if you have any other questions! Have a wonderful day!
