I sponsored this child not only because I felt God laid it on my heart to but because I wanted my 9 year old niece to see how children live in that part of the world. Can I not have her draw pictures, take pictures, and write letters and send those to my child through the mail?

Someone will probably send you an official response tomorrow, but as one sponsor to another, she can absolutely do all of that!  Everything just has to go through the Colorado office for your protection and theirs, and be sure to write her name, child #, and your sponsor # on each item in case they get separated.  (They process something like 5000 letters a day!)

Of course, Shana! You are more than welcome to send your niece's (or yours for that matter! :) ) drawings to your sponsored child. I'm sure your child will get a kick out of receiving these. :)

One of the sponsors I met on the Bolivia group tour works in letter processing. About a week after the trip she tells me on Facebook chat they processed 87,000 letters that week. Must be much busier this time of year. Five years ago when I became a sponsor it was 11,000 a day.

William, yes, we have been seeing record numbers of sponsor letters lately. This is a huge answer to prayer and a good problem to have! :)
