Has anyone else noticed something strange about recent letters (since the April changes)? They are not on the regular stationery with the topic for the letter at the top (example: my house, my school, etc.). There is no space for a drawing.

They are not in the child's handwriting. And they almost sound like the child is first introducing himself to me at the beginning of the letter, like they would at the beginning of a sponsorship.

Some of the stationary has changed, yes. All of my kids letters have been in their own handwriting. How many kids/lettters haven't been in the child(ren)'s handwriting?

Beth, it sounds like your sponsored child has reached the point where he can now use the stationery that's given to the older children. This does include more writing space and there are no topic prompts. This allows the children to have more freedom with what they want to share with their sponsors in their letters. There isn't a specific age for when the student centers start giving the children the "older child" templates; it really has to do with the child's comfort level in their letter writing. As far as your concern about the different handwriting in your child's letter, I addressed that concern in your other post titled "Who is writing the child letters." Let me know if you have any problems finding my response and I can post it again here :).
