Two of my correspondence children lost their sponsors in the past year. I was called and offered the chance to pick up their sponsorships, which I gladly did. Several weeks later I received a "My First Letter" from one of them. She wrote to me as if I were a new sponsor and I quickly realized that she must have been told that I no longer sponsored her and she had a new sponsor. She and I have had a wonderful relationship and I was anxiously awaiting news of a birth in her family. My heart broke when I realized that she thought I had ended our relationship. I quickly wrote to her and described it as a mix up, for lack of a better idea. She is too young to try to explain the real reason. I wish this could have been handled differently on her end. If this happens to me again, I will promptly write to the child and tell them that it is still me and nothing will change. Has anyone every brought up this issue before?
