I am writing to get clarification.  I am a fairly new sponsor.  I have written to Jules Ablam Akakpo, TGO51000191, four times and sent a birthday gift. I finally received a form filled in by a random child. Some of the information that was filled in doesn't make sense for a 12 year old boy. Please clarify, is my sponsored child in the program at all?  If not I would like to be re-assigned with a child who will be available to correspond.  
Thank you.

Hi Natalie, 
I am so sorry for the confusion on your sweet child and if he is actually in the program. Please know that I do see the letter you are talking about and I can see why you might feel this way. However, please know that he is in the program and this letter is written by him. A few things to keep in mind is that this letter was written two months ago, and therefore he likely had not received your letters quite yet because your letters typically will take around six weeks to go through the translation process and be delivered to your child. Also, he has never received a letter before so he has never had to have a "conversation" before in writing. I am sure that as he gets to know you through your letters of love an encouragement that he will open up and want to really get to know you! :)
