Hi, I would like to be placed on the waiting list for 3 more correspondent children in addition to the current 1 I am corresponding with, preferably from Africa or South America. It would be nice to also know where on the list I would stand at this point? My sponsorship number is 2787338.

Also, I am thinking of sponsoring another child but would like to find out more background information about him and his family, as he is classified under the 'physically disabled' category. Is it possible to do so before deciding to sponsor him? Thank you so much!

Hi Rowena! Thank you for your desire to write to three more children :). As requested I have added you to the waiting list today. Currently there are 204 requests for correspondent children and this list changes daily. Also keep in mind that we take into account several variables when assigning correspondent children to sponsor's such as how many children a sponsor already corresponds with, specific requests, and when you requested a child. When a child becomes available that fits your request, we will add this child to your account and you will stay on the list until you have three additional children. 

I would be more than happy to look up the child you are interested in sponsoring and see what information we have regarding his situation! Please post his child number on here or email us at socialmedia@us.ci.org, and I will research it further for you.

Good morning Raechel! It is more difficult to find correspondents for older children and so I deeply appreciate your heart to speak life into these young men and women as they finish up in our program! I have added you to the waiting list for 3 older children today. The requirement to write to a child is that you commit to writing at least three times each year per child. I want to encourage you however, that you're welcome to write as often as you would like. In the meantime, I am excited for you to begin building strong bonds with the two children that were just added to your account :). I know that they will be thrilled to begin receiving letters and getting to know you better.

I think I am ready to start corresponding with another child as well.  Please add me to the list for another Bangladeshi child. If it is difficult to find correspondents for the older children then I would be glad to correspond with one of them. Thank you, and I shall wait patiently.

Hi James! Thank you so much for offering to write to an older child in Bangladesh! Older children are more difficult to find correspondents for because they are closer to leaving the program and don't have as long to build a relationship as younger children do. The only requirement to be a correspondent is to write at least 3 times each year to your child. I am so grateful that you have a heart for these children however, because it gives you the opportunity to provide the boost of motivation and hope they may need to push through their last few months or years before graduation and head out into the world! Your encouragement will mean so much and I have added you to the waiting list today.

Thanks and while you're at it I would also like to request to be added for a child from Sri Lanka, again the age is not an issue for me. Also, I have a friend in Sri Lanka, a teacher, who is interested in learning more about what Compassion International does in her country. Any information that I can pass on to her would be appreciated, as well as contact information for the main office there. Thanks again.

Hi James! As you requested, I have added you to the correspondent waiting list for a child from Sri Lanka. When you receive a correspondent child from Sri Lanka, you will begin receiving area updates on Sri Lanka (we are starting to send these updates to correspondents this fall). Also, you can find and share some more information about our work in Sri Lanka here

Hi Emily! I just emailed the office at ciinfo but wanted to check here too. I am wondering if a little girl from Birkina Faso was sponsored by someone who is willing to write to her. All I can remember is that she had been on the wziting list for almost a year and her name was Angela. She lived in an area with aids and high risk of abuse. I checked back but couldnt find her and shes been in my prayers ever since! Rejoicing she is finally sponsored! Is it possible to check into this and see if she needs a coorespondent sponsor???

Hello Raechel! I cannot thank you enough for keeping this sweet child in your prayers! Prayer is such a powerful tool and I am so encouraged by your words and that she has found a sponsor! I believe I found the girl you mentioned and her new sponsor just wrote her a letter and did not request a correspondent for Angela. I apologize for this inconvenience but I am celebrating with you that she is sponsored and now has someone writing her letters and telling her she is loved and has so much to hope for!

How exciting to hear!!! I'm so happy for her and will continue to keep her in my prayers! It's funny how the Lord brings certain people to mind more so than others-prayer is such a great honor. Thank you so much for looking into this, it gives me peace to know she is being loved!

Adding more correspondent children.


We have a sponsor child and two correspondent children. We hear from our sponsor child quite often.  We haven't heard from our correspondent children yet, we sent our first letters to them in July and have sent several since. I just read that I could to take 4-6 months though to receive our first letters from them.

We would love to add two more correspondent children. My daughters really enjoy writing them and helping getting their packages we send together.

Blessings,

Casey Snyder

Great! We are so excited to hear from Gio! My daughters will be so happy to get his letter.   Can't wait until we get our next two children.

Thank you!

I wanted to check to see if there was a way to tell if a package i sent went through.  I sent a package to Blessing that included some things for her siblings. I was afraid the package might be to thick, so i wasn't sure if it made it through.

Hi again, Casey! Wow, thank you for thinking of Blessilela's siblings. Because they are not registered in Compassion's program, they are indirectly impacted by the things their sister shares with them from the center but now they will be so blessed by you as well! 

If your items were made of paper and within our size requirements (less than 1/4" thick and 8 1/2" x 11" in size), then you can rest assured that it reached your child. You can also ask her in your next letter if you would like! Regrettably, I am unable to see specific items that you sent in my system but my records do note that the last time you sent something to her was in July (hopefully that information helps). If we are unable to process a letter you mail to your child, we will be sure to contact you via letter, email, or phone call :).

Hi Emily, thank you for being so prompt with your replies and all your assistance. I would like to be added to the list for 3 children - of which 2 are either orphans or with mental/physical disability, and the last an older child (above 13 yrs old) from either Africa, Central or South America. I assume I may be waiting for quite a while given my requests but I noted there was suddenly quite a lot of orphan children being sponsored over the last 1-2 days and decided to put my name on the list. I would love to reach out to these special children if given the chance. Thank you again!

Hi Rowena! I so love that you are wanting to reach out to older children, orphan children, and children with special needs! Regrettably, it is not possible for us to search for a child who is an orphan or who has special needs in our correspondent program at this time. When we are looking at children who are available for this program, all we see are the child's ID, personal name, gender, age, and country. We also rarely have orphans and special needs children who become available for this program so it could take quite a long time. I can definitely ask for an older child and have added you to the waiting list with this request. Would you like me to change your other two requests?

Hi Laura! :) You are receiving correspondent children so quickly recently; three in one day is so exciting! You have been such a wonderful correspondent to these children so far and have been so faithful in writing letters consistently to them! For your convenience and so you do not have to continue posting to request more children, I have made a note on your account to keep you on the waiting list. We will continue adding correspondent children to your account as they become available. Please let us know if you come to a point where you have the maximum number of children that you would like to correspond with. You will stay on the waiting list until you advise us that you would like to be removed :). Happy writing!

Thanks so much Emily!! That is perfect!  At this point I don't feel I have a maximum.  I had a bone marrow transplant, so I am off work and I am not sure I will ever be able to work again.  Writing is one of my passions and Compassion is one of my passions....but the two together and it gives me something to do while using one of my Godly gifts (writing).  I love writing the children and consider them all mine even though I only correspond with them.  I Love them all dearly and make sure they know that and how special they are to God and myself.  Thanks again!

We feel so blessed to be able to write to children in the correspondence program. Could you please add us back to the waiting list for two more? Sponsoring and writing to children all over the world reminds me of the song we sang as kids in church, "Jesus lives the little children of the world". Any age, any country. They are all precious. Thanks so much!

I decided that it would be fun to have a correspondent child for every country compassion supports so I will start with the Central America and Caribbean countries. I need a girl from Dominican Republic .. El Salvvador .. Guatemala .. Mexico .. and Nicaragua, when I get to know those girls I will then start with South America. Thanks, I still want to be on the list for any girls that do not fit with anyone else, I have a couple hours a day scheduled for letter writing so I can write to more kids easily once a month ..

Casey, what a beautiful heart your daughter has, I think that is wonderful that she loves writing to these children. Tell her that she is amazing and makes someones heart just blossom with love. I love hearing of the children supporting children and writing them. On our trip to Honduras we had three young teens that were visiting their sponsored kids. It was such a blessing to see them have a heart for the kids.

I just received 2 girls today.  Thank you so much.  I think I am on the list for one more girl, can you indicate that this girl be from Asia or South America and can you add one additional girl from The Dr.  So that would leave me on the list for 2 girls when they are available.  Thank you so very much for all of your continued work.  On a side note.  For some reason I am not getting my email alerts either from this thread which I am following or from new threads.  I checked my profile and the appropriate boxes are checked.  Any suggestions?

Deb, I currently have you on the list for two girls. One of the requests says "Asia or S America just not from Haiti or India" and the other says "South America." I just added and additional request for a girl from the Dominican Republic. I am not sure why you are not receiving the notification emails. Have you checked your spam folder?
