I am concerned that the letters I am receiving are not personally written by my sponsored child. Each letter seems to be in a different handwriting. Why is this?

The name of the person writing the letter should be At the end somewhere. Kids do not write their own letters until about age 10 (and even then it is child specific). The tutors there work with the children to help them write their letters. Sometimes parents and siblings also help

Good morning Kami, 
I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling concerned! As Sarah mentioned, your child will likely begin writing on her own soon since she is 10 years old now. As she mentioned, each handwriting is different because it is a different tutor each time helping her write. She should begin trying to write on her own soon, although depending on how comfortable she is with writing, it may take her a little more time than some other children. This would be a great opportunity to encourage her to being writing on her own. I hope this is helpful! :)
