Even in an age where the majority of communication takes place electronically, there is still something exciting about receiving a letter in the mail. Now imagine if that was the only mode of communication you had with the outside world. Receiving letters in the mail is thrilling for our children. They are a tangible reminder of the care and love of their sponsors.

We encourage you to write to your child and foster a relationship. You can share stories about happenings in your life that they may find interesting, and you can ask about their interests, school progress, and home life to get to know your child.

Letters should be mailed to:

Blessing the Children International
2267 Fraser Road
Kawkawlin, MI  48631
