Good afternoon!
I currently sponsor a child and I am also a correspondant to a young woman. I would love to be a correspondant for a little boy through this program!

When they are little they can't write and so the person at the site responds. The child goes to the center and they are read your letter and ask questions and the helper response. As they get older they will write. I have been compassion for 30 years and have had several children and now Ugandan son is 22 and out of program and we have talked. He has shared with me so many important things for sponsors to know.  His own experiences he has shared how much the letters mean to them even if they are unable to write back til older. And the cards and LOVE are life changing since many dont have parents at all.  Blessings

I would love to hear his thoughts on the most important parts of being a sponsor (from the viewpoint of being a sponsored child). Anything you want to share is gratefully appreciated.

Hi Ashley! I would be happy to add you to our correspondent list. :) Do you have any preferences as far as age or country where this little guy is from?

Elementary school age, it doesn't matter from where.

If at all possible I would like to switch to someone from a non-Spanish speaking country.

Hi Allison, we actually already assigned a child from the DR to your account on Friday to fill the request I placed in for you. Are you asking us to remove this child and be put back on the list for an elementary age child from anywhere non Spanish speaking?

Allison, I have removed Joel from your account today and placed another request on our correspondent waiting list for a boy from a non-Spanish speaking country. We do kindly ask that in the future, if you do have special requests such as this, that you let us know ahead of time. We really value being able to provide the kiddos in our program with consistency when it comes to correspondents. Thank you so much! :)
