I got letters from Raphaeli (TZ083000164) and Bosco (RW023400138) today and they were really good and informative letters but they were both written by the center staff. The last letters I got from both of them they wrote themselves so I'm just wondering, why would they switch if the boys can write well? One of my other boys, Joao, has a tutor writing for him right now, but she told me in her last letter that he doesn't write yet.

Also, Bosco's letter is from August 5th, which is four months to the day after I sent him a birthday gift, but the letter doesn't mention the gift. Does that mean he still hasn't received it?

Adam, it looks like from that letter that Bosco was on holiday for a few weeks when the letter writing day at the project happened so the staff wrote it on his behalf. I actually love that you received a letter that shows you how well the center staff know him and care for him :). No, Bosco has probably received your gift by now. The stationary he wrote on was just stationary for a reciprocal letter, not a thank you letter. He will have another letter to write to you (if he hasn't written it already) regarding the special birthday gift you sent him. If you don't receive it within six months of sending the gift, do let us know so we can look into it for you. From what I see regarding Raphaeli, it looks like he just recently moved away from the form letters. It's very possible that he was struggling that day with what to write on the completely blank stationary and received help from his tutor for that reason. It may take him some practice to get the hang of the older child stationary since he has been used to the form stationary for quite a while. Hang in there with him and encourage him in it!
