Can you please email me the photos you have of Eyob? Also, I was wondering about the process of the kids getting a correspondent sponsor. Because I requested a teenage boy a couple of hours ago. And I just found him on my account. I was lower on the waiting list so I was just wondering how I got him on my account so quickly. Thank you for any information in advance!

Currently, Grace, I think a LARGE part of the people remaining on the list are people with very specific wants. So even newer requests for non-specific wants are getting correspondents faster than in the past. That teenager must have not fit any of the requests above you on the list.  This has been going on for a month or so -- they are getitng kids needing correspondents faster than they are getting people willing to write to any kid on the list.

Hi Grace! I have emailed you the photos of Eyob. The correspondents are linked to the children based on the availability and the criteria. If the correspondents criteria does not match the child available, then they go to the next correspondent. Your criteria must have been the first one on the list that matched the child that was available. Congratulations on your new correspondent child.
