I had an India child and would like to sponsor a new one. Is there an easy way to do it? You are sending me a child or do I need to go and pick a new one? Just wanted to make sure I am not ending up not getting a child or not understanding what my next step it. The letter said if I didn't nothing I would be sent a new child but wasn't sure what the time frame for this was.

Vickie, I am another sponsor. If you haven't received a packet in the mail for a new child, you will soon. You can also pick from the website, then notify Compassion if you don't want to take the child in the packet you receive.

Thanks. I might wait because I have such a hard time choosing. I want to support them all.

HI Vickie! Garry is right. We will be sending you another child to consider. You do not need to feel obligated to sponsor the child we chose for you, but you will need to let us know what you decide. If you do nothing, the child that we have sent for consideration will be auto-accepted onto your account. Just let us know if you want to make any changes to the account, as all settings such as automatic pull date, etc. will stay the same as they were for your India child. Otherwise, like Garry said, you are welcome to select a new kiddo online. With that said, I do see that we have selected a kiddo and you should receive their packet very soon! :) -Shannon

Thanks Shannon.   I thought so but wanted to make sure I didn't miss read my letter earlier this month.   I am looking forward to seeing who you paired my family & I with.   Choosing a child is hard so unless something is weird, we will take who is given to us.
