Good Morning! I feel like I read something relatively similar to my question awhile back but I didn't see it when I started this query. Please excuse me if I'm doubling up on something that was just discussed ;) I received a letter on Friday from my little girl in Haiti telling me that her mom had just given birth to a new baby girl. Today I'm sticking  a card in the mail for her to congratulate her on becomming a big sister (she was previously the baby) and I also stuck a card in there addressed to her mom. I can do that, right?

Hey, I asked this at some point (but I dont know if it was on her or if I asked over the phone). I was told that yes I could also write to my childs parents. They did not have their names or anything to give me, but I could ask my child so I could correspond with the parents as well.

That is super sweet of you to want to send a letter to her mom. A new baby (no matter the situation) should always be a joyous occasion!

Hi Lindsay! What an exciting time as a new little life has entered the family and your child has a new sister :). I pray that they are both healthy and strong. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and wanting to bless your child's mother with a congratulations and some encouragement. You are certainly welcome to send this! Our project staff will give the card to your child who will then be able to deliver it to her mother for you. I am not sure if you did this already, but in the future just remember to place your child's ID number and your sponsor number on the cards you send to siblings or family members. This is so we know who it belongs to if it gets separated from your child's letter.
