Eleanor, these are the only ones that have been registered in the system at this time, but there are probably some that have been written and are awaiting to be processed at the country offices.

Eleanor, I'm so sorry to hear that you haven't received any letters from Daleska in so long. It is not normal to go this long without receiving a letter. I have sent an inquiry to the field office in Peru. They will ensure that Daleska is well, and they will ask her to write you a letter. It will take 6-8 weeks to receive a response, and we will be in contact with you as soon as we hear back. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we appreciate your patience :).

I was wondering if there is a letter on the way for me (Child ID: EI1770041)? I sent a family gift in August and I'm dying to hear what they got and how they are doing. Thanks for letting me know.

Sometimes it is that quick, Katie :). Our field staff have other tasks besides these inquiries and so we give them some time to get back to us especially if they have to do research on an inquiry, make a visit to a home in order to take a picture or verify information, or ask your child to write a letter. I'm so sorry that this has happened to you before. You have every right to know how your gift was used and it's exciting so I definitely understand your eagerness to know how it blessed him! We appreciate your patience as we get this to you as quickly as we're able! :)

OK. Also, I recently read on here that once a child that a person is sponsoring graduates that you automatically send a packet of another child to start sponsoring. Can you take us off of the list? I never knew you did that until recently and I don't want the hassle of having to call and discontinue something. When that time comes, we would like to have the choice to chose the child we sponsor rather than having it done for us. Thanks!

Hi Katie! I have updated your preferences to honor this request. When a child on your account, leaves our program for any reason, we will not automatically assign another child to you. Thanks for letting us know.

Yep! Emily sent that inquiry out for you on the 22nd :). It will probably take between six and eight weeks before we hear from the country office regarding what Prisca's family received.

Hi Eleanor - yes, I was able to validate that you have letters in process from each of the children above. It appears that for the majority of these children, we are just waiting for the letter to be returned to our country office for translation and processing.

Hi Linda! Regrettably, I don't see any new letters coming yet. The last one we processed was from Melat on March 15, which I hope you have received already. If you haven't received it yet, you should be receiving it within the next few weeks!

I sent a child gift to a sponsored child in the beginning of January and have not received a letter yet in the mail. Can you let me know if a letter is on the way? I was curious what he used the money for and haven't heard back from him. The child # is EI1770041. Thanks!

Hi Katie! I am so sorry you haven't yet heard from Luzence regarding the generous gift you sent to him in January. I don't see that we have a letter coming from him yet, but I am going ahead and sending an inquiry to check on this for you. It takes between six and eight weeks for us to hear back regarding these inquiries, but I will contact you once we do receive a response. I know you're excited to see how that gift was used as a blessing for him :).

Hello!  I hope this isn't too much trouble, but can you tell me if we have any letters coming from our children that may not be showing up on the accounts yet?  (Sponsor #s 3736067 or 3761826).

Thank you so much!

Tammy, for your account, the last letters I see were sent at the end of June. It does look like Afoyomungu Mercy is in the process of sending you a letter right now that I trust you will receive soon. For Hannah's account, it looks like the last letter was sent in June and I do not see any additional letters on the way.

Hi Hilary! You have letters coming from Malory, Jeymi, Fernanda, Wilmeris, Oriana, Noemi, Stephani, Jhenny, Karla, Michaella, Flor, Ana, Genesis, Nayda, Yeimy, Asmi, Nancy, Lisbeth, Akumu, Gil, Carolay, and Mariela. These are all in process right now, but since we are manually translating letters again you may not see them on your account until they have been fully processed.

I was wondering the same thing. I have a few kiddos thatI haven't heard from in a while; I figure it has something to do with the letter backup. Waiting patiently, I would just feel better knowing there were letters on the way

Hi Heather! Would you mind letting me know which kiddos you haven't heard from in a while? Hilary has less than half the number of kids you have which is why I was able to go through all of hers. To see the letters in process, we have to look up each kiddo individually. It takes a long time to look up more than 10. If you don't mind, knowing which kiddos you are really concerned about at this point would help me out a lot! :)

No problem. Here's my list: Aracely (BO4050763), Anelsy ( DR3800647), Geoffrey Ormisi (KE7900016), and Joel (EC4640339). Also, it will be 4 months on the 26th since I sponsored Ivan (UG4460111). Thanks and God bless!

Hi Tammy! Good to "see" you here. :) It looks like there are two letters at the country office from Aleena so I trust you will get them real soon. I also see a letter from Aberu that was just sent out to you a few days ago and I hope you got it.

Aw Crystal, I started my sponsorship journey just a month before you did, I am trying to patiently wait for our first letter as well, I know that it could take four months but I too am eager to hear from our little Dorca.  I too would love to know where our letters might be on their journey if at all possible... or if we might have one on the way soon.  Thanks so much ~April

Hello!  Can you do a quick check to see if there are letters in the pipline for me or my daughter (3736067 or 3761826).  My daughter especially is hoping a letter from Aberu T. is on the way, as she would love to hear how she was able to use the general gift we sent in April.

Thank you so much for your help!

Hi Tammy! The most recent letters I see for you are from Prisca and Aleena, but you may have already been aware of those. The most recent letter I see for your daughter was almost a month ago from Burte. Hannah should receive a thank you letter by the end of this month for that general gift for Aberu, since it was disbursed on May 13. Please let us know if Hannah doesn't receive that letter in the next few weeks and we will send an inquiry for her. I'm sorry for the wait :(.

Thank you, I'm actually a little disappointed. This "letter" is very vague, and was clearly not written by our sponsor child. I thought that we were supposed to be corresponding with the child? We have written a few letters and sent pictures, we shared a story about how we chose him because our son was stillborn on April 28th, and Marc's birthday is April 28th. Yet in his letter it is written "would you like to tell me about your family"

Rebecca, I am sorry your first letter was disappointing for you. I am sponsor too and it sounds as though your letter(s) to your child and your letter from your child may have crossed in the mail. Since letters have been a backlogged it is quite possible that your child received his letter after he was assisted in writing yours. Since (by reading the previous posts) it seems this is an introductory letter it may have been written earlier and set aside for when your child was sponsored.

My family and I sponsor several children and correspond with many others. It takes about a year to get a good flow of letters and relationships to build. Writing letters is a different concept for our kiddos and it takes some time for them to get comfortable and confident with writing letters on their own. For example, I have 13 year-old in Haiti that still has family members help him write while my 6 year-old in the Philippines writes sweet little letters on her own as well as her mother writes to me too.

Give it time, it may take a while for your child to get everything right when they write. Some of my kiddos still get confused about some things :). The important thing is that your kiddo knows he is loved. Thank you so much for blessing him with your love, sponsorship, and letters. I hope this helps! God bless!

Can you please check if my daughter (3761826) has a letter coming from Aberu T.?  We sent a general gift 7 months ago (on April 14th) and have not heard yet how she was able to use it.

Thank you!

Hi Linda! You actually have two letters on the way from Marlon but they are both being processed at the country office. According to what I have the last letter was sent June 16. This means that we can send the inquiry December 16 if there are no letters by then. I apologize for the extra wait on these letters! There are also letters on the way from Geraldine, Sumon, Vinthresson, Melat, Lucas, and Juliene.

Linda, I don't see letters from these two children yet. Also, would you mind posting the child IDs of the kids you are wanting me to look up moving forward? We've moved to a new system and it is much easier for me to find children with their IDs rather than their first names :). Edouard, please email us at socialmedia@compassion.com for more information on sponsorship.

My mom who followed suit and also sponsored a little girl a few months after I did is currently wondering if she might have a letter on the way as its been about 4 months now since she began sponsoring. She's not the best with tech so I figured I'd ask here for her. Grisleys id# BO036900751 and my moms sponsor number 07282647

Thanks!

Hi April! Your mom is also welcome to call us at 800-336-7676 if she's more comfortable with that. :) It looks like the first letter from Grisley was sent back for her to redo because it didn't fit the guidelines. That said, there are two other letters that are in process and appear to be stuck. I am sending an inquiry to see if we can speed up these letters. I am so sorry your mom has had to wait so long!

Thank you Susan! I thought posting here on her behalf would be easier as she is disabled and has a hard time understanding sometimes. She saw my excitement in sponsoring and she wanted to do the same. I will be letting her know about all the letters she can expect, that's wonderful, thank you again:)
