I had two sponsors but one has dropped out. Now I get a letter confirming a new sponsor but I never said I would sponsor him. What do I do? I was in the process of choosing and praying for a child and I didn't want one assigned to me.

Hi Elizabeth! I am so sorry for the confusion with a new child being added to your account. I do see that Neserla was added to your account on the 24th of June. With the majority of sponsors asking to sponsor another child immediately after one child leaves the program, we have a system in place that automatically sends out a packet with information on a new child to consider for sponsorship. Included in that packet is a request for the sponsor to let us know if they do not wish to sponsor the new child. The request states that if the sponsor does not contact Compassion within a certain length of time, the child will be automatically accepted onto their account. Because we had sent the request with the packet in May, and hadn't heard back from you, we accepted Neserla as your sponsored child. I apologize if you did not receive this letter of explanation. In the future, if you do not wish for us to automatically send another child for your consideration, we are happy to note your account as such. I can absolutely remove him from your account and place him up for sponsorship with someone else if you would like me to. It sounds like you may have already had a direction of which child you were going to choose to sponsor.
