Jenny, I'm so sorry to hear of the financial hardships you are facing, but I may be able to help you. We are incredibly grateful for the difference your sponsorship is making in Samuel's life, so Compassion would be happy to cover your support for three months. This means we would cover the months of November of 2017 through January of 2018. If this would help you keep Samuel, please let me know, and I would be happy to take care of this for you. However, if you do still need to cancel, please let me know, and I will remove Samuel and make him available for sponsorship. I look forward to your reply!

Thank you very much for the offer but I do still need to cancel. And I will be praying for Samuel to have a new sponsor very soon.

I also can't continue my sponsorship :( I'm in college and will barely be able to support myself for the next few years. I lost the job I had that was allowing me to pay the support for Isabel and I can't sponsor her anymore, even after three months. I'm so sorry about this and have loved being able to sponsor her!

Lauren, I am so sorry to hear that you are faced with such a tough decision, but I know from experience how difficult it is to support yourself while in college. As you requested, I have made Isabel available for another sponsor. Thank you so much for all that you have done for her over the last year! God bless as you continue your schooling.

I cannot continue sponsoring Paulo. I was making plenty to sponsor him with $45 per month but due to health issues I was forced to resign and I no longer have the funding. I would love to continue sponsoring him but I have been told I will likely need surgery and multiple different procedures that my insurance will not cover. Please understand I'm very upset that I cannot continue. I will still continue praying for him and his mother Gabriela.

Brittany, I am so sorry to hear that you have had such serious health issues that you were forced to resign. :( My heart hurts for you as you are facing the uncertainty of more surgery and procedures that your insurance won't cover. :( That is tough. I pray that your health will become stabilized and for God's provision in your day to day as well as your medical bills. I definitely understand that this is never an easy decision and I am so sorry you are faced with this situation. It also sounds like this sadly may be more of a long term struggle.  As you requested, I have made Gabriela available for another sponsor. Please feel free to send h er a final letter saying goodbye if you would like. Please just write "Final Letter" at the top and send it to:
