Is it okay if I send Mother's Day cards to my child? I thought of sending my sponsor kids mother's day cards and leaving them blank so that they can give the cards to their mothers as a gift. I even found a card that is "a prayer for my mother" written in spanish which I thought would be really special for my girls in Guatemala and Mexico to give their moms. Any input from other sponsors would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Rebekah! I have thought about doing this too. I have in the past sent cards and notes of encouragement for my child to give to a parent from me. But I found a page for Mother's Day that the kids could color and give to their mom. I guess if they don't choose to use it that way it is up to them, but I thought I could do a theme letter about Mother's Day/Father's Day. It is always fun when you can find things in Spanish, like the card you found! I have children in Guatemala too.

Thank you! I love the idea of coloring pages so she can add her own personal touch, since moms treasure things their children make! That is so awesome that we both have kids in Guatemala. I will pray for your kids in Guatemala too. Blessings!

It would be great to have the opportunity to send Easter cards online too :)

Ceri, you are right that there is the option of sending Easter letter stationary but we do not have Easter cards available in the online system. I'll certainly pass along this feedback. Thank you!

Rebekah, what a kind thought! Yes, you are welcome to send Mother's Day cards to your children that are either written by you to their moms or left blank for them to fill out. I would just be careful to only send them if the child lives with their mom as that could be painful otherwise. I like Beth's idea of sending a coloring page too. :)

Thank you! And that is a good reminder. I have a child in Thailand who is an orphan, and she lives with her grandmother. I was able to find a "i love you grandma" card for her instead. Do you think that would be okay?

I wrote short letters addressed to "the mother of______/" with the last letter that I sent to my children. I explained mother's day to the kids, then told them that the rest of the letter was for their mother. I also sent full page pictures with what I hope are encouraging Bible verses on them for the mother to hang on the walls of the house. If nothing else they might keep some of the bugs out
