I have sponsored a child for over 10 years. Just recently I received a voice mail message that our child is over 21 and has departed the program. When I logged into my account, my child had already been deleted from my account. We felt has if our child and her family were apart of our family. Why weren't we notified the year (or 6 months) previously, so we could have written a proper good bye to our child (who is in college not at home with family) and a proper good bye to her family. Has my child been given my email to keep in contact with me? When I called your office, I was told I could write a physical letter and they would try to get it to my child. As my child, is at a college that I don't know the name of, I find this hard to believe that my letter will ever be received. Children must depart the program regularly; I believe that Compassion could have handled this situation and others in a better manner so sponsors and their child are given enough time to make this a smooth transition.
