I've been on the waiting list to for a correspondance child for about a month now. I think the estimated waiting time was about 4-8 weeks? How will I be let known that I have a correspondance child? Will he/she show up under "my sponsorships" in my account one day? I check frequently just in case, but I didn't know if Compassion would call me or what before adding a new child. Thank you :)

Hey Taylor! When a correspondent child is assigned to you, they will show up on your online account. You will also receive their packet in the mail about 10 days after the child is assigned.

Your child will show up on your account with your other sponsorships! I hope you get a correspondence child soon! I know when I was waiting for my last one I logged onto my account several times a day until he showed up! lol

Thank you. I can't wait! Also, if you would like to have more than one correspondance will I need to ask to be put back on the list again?

no. You have to just either keep looking online or wait for the packet to come in the mail.

I would think you should be getting a child soon. Just about a week ago, I know a girl who signed up for one and got one the next day! So I hope you get one soon :)

The next day? Wow! I wish that was the case for me lol. I can't wait to see the new kid & to get started corresponding with them. I'm hoping for a girl. I have a son of my own and my sponsor child is a boy. It would be fun to have a little girl, but I'm happy to correspond with any kid!

I wish I knew how far back I am on the list :)
I guess this is a lesson in patience.

A big one. I waited 2 weeks for one and almost a month for another one. So yes, ive learned that with Compassion, patience is a virtue.
