what happens when people stop sponsorship? Does the child stay in the program and do they know that the sponsor stopped sponsoring them? I am wondering what affect this has on the child?

When you end a sponsorship, your child will automatically be placed back into the pool of unsponsored children. They will continue to receive benefits at their center - thanks to the unsponsored children's fund - until a new sponsor is found. They will be told that their sponsor is no longer sponsoring them and you are given an opportunity to send a final letter. 
The benefit they will miss out on while without a sponsor is receiving letters and sending letters to their sponsor. Other than that, they will receive all the same benefits all other children receive.

I really don't want to end my sponsorship and I have seen on here that Compassion will suspend sponsorship for 3 months. Is it possible to get some assistance with that? My husband is having medical problems and if I could get 3 months rest, I am hopeful God will provide for me to continue sponsorship.

Crissy, I actually took care of covering your sponsorships financially through the end of March so that you would have a few months without having to make the donations. I did this at the beginning of January for you, but please let me know if covering your donations through March does not offer enough help to you.

How do I delete this post? I didn't realize that this post would show up for anyone to read by googling my name.

Someone should be able to help you with different options after the holiday weekend. They can sometimes offer to cover a couple of months or offer a reduced payment option for a few months.

I learned when I visited my kids in Bolivia that the Compassion centers do receive slightly more money to operate their programs for each sponsored child they have. So when a child loses his or her sponsor the project he or she attends receives slightly less funds until a new sponsor is found. I appreciated knowing that the money I pay actually does make a real difference in how my child's center is funded and operated.

Crissy, I am so sorry that your husband has been going through medical problems recently :(. I am taking care of covering the months of sponsorship that you've missed as well as the months of January through March. Please let us know if we can help you further and know that we will be praying for you and your husband!
