Here I am going to disprove three letter writing myths that might be believed when writing to your sponsored child.
1. I have to fill up the whole page.
No, you don't. Yes, your child would love to read pages and pages from you, but they would also love just a few words. Even only a few sentences of encouragement would be such a blessing to your child!
2. I can't tell them what I do because there is such a difference between my life and theirs.
Yes, there is a big difference between your life and your child's. However, you can still tell them about your life. Tell them that you had lunch with a friend. Tell them that you went to work. Please do be careful about what you say, but if you keep it simple, it should be perfectly fine!
3. I have to send out a whole package when I write my child.
While a whole package of coloring pages and stickers is nice, so is a letter. Often when I try to put together a whole package, it takes me longer to get the letter out. That is the most important thing- the letter. Sure, send extra fun stuff sometimes, but it is not as important.
Well, I hope this encourages you to write to your child and shows you how simple and easy it is!
