Sending a Birthday Letter

Just curious:  If I write my child for her birthday, but the letter gets there and is translated early, do the workers on the other end hold on to it until her birthday?  I'm always worried that it will be too early and she will think I don't know when her birthday is (which then means I put it off and forget, and it's probably late).

Hi Lauren! I appreciate your concern and thoughtfulness for your children's feelings. The translators do not hold letters, everything is done electronically. Your letter is translated electronically and once the translation is complete, it is printed out to be delivered to your child. Some of our church partner's are able to print their own letters and some are still picked up at the national office. I wouldn't be worried about your child receiving the birthday letter or card early. They are very blessed when they receive your special birthday message and are just happy to know you remembered them. It is similar to when you were a child and received your birthday card in the mail from your grandparents. At least for me personally, I was just excited to get the card, I never thought hmmm...this is early, Nana must have forgot my birth date. Please know that these children are not use to presents or special messages of love and encouragement, so every letter, card, photo or gift you send them is like treasure. Thank you for taking the time to bless them with your loving and kind words of encouragement. <3
