Hello! We sponsored 2 children and wrote them a few "letters" on the website. Just wondering if we are going to get any type of response and how long it will take?

Hi Taylor, 

I am so sorry, it looks like half my response did not come through. 

I wanted to let you know that I do see only one letter in progress on your account, so if you did write to both girls, I would encourage you to check your drafts in case it got stuck in there. I would hate for you to think you wrote to both of them, if it only went through to one. 

In addition, please know the children value your letters so much and they also love writing you back and praying for you! We do have a special day at the child center every two months devoted to writing letters. If you have written to them, they will write you a letter in return. This means if you are writing every couple months, you will get more letters than if you only write a few times per year. In addition, please keep in mind that since both of your girls are very young, a tutor or family member will be the ones writing on their behalf for the next few years. You can see who wrote to you by checking the bottom of each letter. 

Because all letters must go through a quality assurance check, as well as translation, we would encourage you to expect about 2-4 months in between letters if you are writing often. You may receive them more often, but that is a pretty good starting point as you build a relationship with one another. If you ever do go more than a full six months without hearing from your child, please let us know as we would like to reach out just to make sure they are okay. 

If you have any other questions at all, feel free to email our team directly at socialmedia@compassion.com. Thank you so much!
