I am super happy I got my first correspondent child so quickly after the request to get one. I would love another one!! May I request a little girl? Thank you all so much for such thorough, fast positive replies. Y'all are awesome.

You are put at the top of the list for your first correspondent so the amount of time it takes just depends on how specific your request is and who is being sponsored and having a correspondence requested. However lately, the list seems to be moving pretty fast so I'd expect to get a second correspondent within 6 months easily!

Probably much faster. Last year, I got my first correspondent on Dec 28 -- just a few days after requesting (and that is WITH it being at Christmas) and my second on March 20. So even faster than that. More recently I requested to be added to the correspondent list in October and just received the kid for that request
last week.

Hi Kellie! I just placed you on the waiting list for a little girl :). There are many factors that go into how long the wait for additional correspondent children can be. Having a less specific request can absolutely help you receive another child faster than if you are requesting a child with very specific characteristics. The correspondent waiting list currently has over 400 requests on it and we don't have that many available children. Some months we have a lot of children to give correspondents to and others we simply don't have any. It just depends, but I have no doubt you'll see another child on your account in the exact timing that God has for you and the kiddo!
