CO3810267 I just received a letter from Deiby. In it he says his birthday is in October. The info on the website and packet says July. When is his birthday?

Hi John! We do indeed have in our records that Deiby's birthday is in July. In many cultures, actual birthdates are not considered to be of great significance. A mother and father may not know exactly what day their child was born; only the year and perhaps the month may be known for sure. On the day your child was registered with Compassion, the project staff may not have had a birth certificate to go by and the day of birth was a "best guess" by the parent.We will be happy toinvestigate this and let you know what we find out. I do want to let you knowthat we are currently updating our system and are unable to validate thatinformation or change any child information/photos until early February.
