35 Questions to Ask Your Sponsored Child about Their Friends & Family

I've heard some sponsors say they don't write, because they aren't sure what to write about.  I've compiled some question list that might be helpful to you.  These were posted on my old blog, and I am reposting them here.  The third of these lists is 35 Questions to Ask Your Sponsored Child about Friends & Family. Feel free to use them in your letters, and to answer the questions for your children about yourself. 

Some of these questions will be appropriate only for older, or younger children or certain cultures, but I thought it might help some who are stuck with things to talk about.
