I am the sponsor of Mary Grace in the Philippines and my daughter Gracie is her correspondent. My daughter hasn't received a letter in quite some time and told me she has been waiting for a letter before writing back. Can someone give me an update on what is going on with letters to and from this child?

Hi Rachel! I am seeing that Mary Grace hasn't written a letter since her last one was placed on Gracie's account in February. Did Gracie receive that letter? I ask because you mentioned that Gracie was waiting to hear from Mary Grace before sending another letter. I'm showing that Gracie hasn't written to Mary Grace since November, making me think that she may not have received that last letter. If not, let me know and I will send another copy to her. Mary Grace does have another letter in the works as well, which should be processed and placed on Gracie's account in the next few months. Since she hasn't received a letter from Gracie since November, she hasn't had any letters to respond to in the last nine months, which may be why she hasn't written in the past six months.

I don't think Gracie has received the February letter. Could we get a hard copy sent out to her? Also, we've moved this month and Gracie probably hasn't updated her address. Could you check that her address matches my updated one before that goes out? If my Gracie doesn't write in the next month or so I may need to switch Mary Grace to my account. I really hate to think of her not getting any letters.

Hi Rachel, 
No problem at all! I have updated her address to match your account and re-mailed that letter from February out to Gracie! :)

@Rachel  I'm not staff, but just a random fact to know you might want to pass on to your daughter too.  The kids in Compassion write every 6 months if they don't hear from a sponsor, but if they DO get letters more often they will write more often too.  There is a letter writing day every 60 days and each time they get a letter within the 60 days before letter writing day they write a response, so if you daughter wants to write more often she'll also get more letters back.  (They RECEIVE letters usually once a month at the project)
