Child first learning that they have a sponsor.

My husband and I sponsored another child last Thursday and two more on Saturday. Do you have any idea how much time passes before the children learn that they have been sponsored? Do they also learn our names and our country at that time? One of these children has been waiting nearly two years for a sponsor and is already 18 years old. As far as I can tell he is also the last in his center to not have a sponsor. I can't imagine how this has made him feel. Another, but younger, one has waited 800 days!

Hi all! Great questions! Typically the country office is made aware that the child has a new sponsor within that same week. As far as when your child knows, that could vary by project, but it is good news that they want to share as quickly as they can!
