Hi I recently am a sponsor to a beautiful 3yr old girl in Honduras. I didn't see any mentioning of immediate parents on her profile and was curious if Compassion is involved with adopting as well?

Thank you,
Chet

Hello Chetra! Thank you so much for sponsoring your sweet girl in Honduras and for wanting to make sure that she has a loving family to take care of her :). Compassion is a child development organization operating within the countries where Compassion-assisted children live. We want sponsored children to make a difference in their own homes, communities, cities and countries, so we do not facilitate adoption. Emily's parents are both alive, but she does not seem to live with them. She currently lives with her grandmother, aunt, and uncle. Though she doesn't live with her parents, I am sure her grandmother loves her dearly. She also has a loving, compassionate family through her local church and Compassion center who love her and support her :).

Hi Sarah, thank you for your response. I am glad to hear about her parents and those she lives with. Ever since i landed on her profile, i have always been curious and worried. I hope the relationship between her and I will grow quickly although knowing it does take time for communication to reach either one of us. She has been on my mind ever since that i constantly check on the site every hour in the event there is any new info on her. A friend of mine also noticed how much it touched me and is currently looking to become a sponsor as well. Thank you for what you all do!
