I am so sorry but it looks like by the time we received your child sponsorship information, that child was actually no longer available. Sadly, there is an expiration date on the back of your packet and if we do not receive your information by that date, we do have to release that child to be sponsored by someone else. This is why we selected a "like child", which is a child that has similar characteristics. I am so sorry for this. Please do let us know if you have any questions on this!
