I know from spending several years in groups with other sponsors on the internet that you certainly aren't the first to have a pregnant Compassion kid.  Compassion wouldn't just drop her from the program.  They do everything possible to help these girls and their babies.  If there is a CSP (program for the Moms and babies), they might be put into that, but from what I have heard, they are usually left in the regular programs.  I even sponsored a girl after her baby was born, and had a great writing relationship with her for the time she was in Compassion.  When Compassion called you, they should have stated why they dropped her.  I would assume that it was because she wasn't attending.  Many times these girls are embarrassed to go back to the Compassion project, and while Compassion will go and seek these girls out, many times they know how much their life has changed, and never come back.  I am sure you will get an answer on here from Compassion has to why she was dropped, but in the future if you ever lose a child and don't feel you have a satisfactory answer, just call Compassion, and they will let you know what is on the file as to why the child left.
