Even though they are young, I wanted to check if either child has any previous photographs. If so, may I have a copy e-mailed to me? Also, how long is the correspondence sponsorship list that I am currently waiting on?

Hi Suzanne! 

It looks like your children were registered in the program in 2012 and 2013. Since we process photo updates every two years, there are no previous photos of your children.  

There are about seventy people on the waiting list right now for correspondent children. However, some of these requests are more specific than others and could take longer. It could take anywhere between a few days to a few weeks to receive a child to write to.

Hi, I just recently sponsored an older child. I was wondering if she has had any previous sponsors or photographs. My sponsor number is 3297568.

Hi Marissa! Yes, the older child that you just sponsored has a previous photograph. I'm sending you an email with this photo and whether she's had previous sponsors.

I sent an email to Compassion today saying that I want to be put on the correspondent list. I am not 100% sure that the email went through. My computer has been acting funny today. Anyways, I would like two children. Age, gender, and country do not matter. My sponsor number is 3297568. About how long is the waiting list right now?

Hi Marissa! Actually our computers were acting funny yesterday too and we were having technical difficulties. I'm so glad we were able to connect here though! :) I went ahead and just added you to the waiting list. There are about one hundred people waiting right now.

Marissa, we will add them to your account so you will see them online. Also, we will send you their information packet in the mail.

I recently received a letter from one of my sponsored children's pastors. It discussed many things such as the remote area where they live, the problems in the community such as addictions, and how they tend to have large families. 
I believe my little girl has five siblings. I was wondering if you could share with me any information on them that you have and how many are sponsored (also do any need sponsors?). I really want to pray for them and send family gifts from time to time. 
Thanks!

My sponsor number: 3297568
Her number: EC2611693

Hi Marissa! I'm happy to hear that you found your child's pastor's letter to be helpful in understanding her situation! That's wonderful! I just sent you and email with the information I have on this child's siblings. This particular family must be a needy family because there are a few siblings registered.
