Tanya, I am so sorry to hear that you are faced with such a difficult decision. :( Please know that we do have some options that may be able to help if these are short term changes to your financial status. For example, we could cover three months' support for you and then we could lower your support amount to $19 for five months. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let me know and I will make your child available for another sponsor. Also, please note that you will not be able to keep writing to that particular child because the letter writing is included in the sponsorship. We do have a program where you could write to a child whose sponsor is not able to write letters, but it would be a different child than who you had been sponsoring. Anyway, if you have a heart for letter writing let me know and I would be happy to set you up for this free letter writing program.

Hi Susan. Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I think it best if I just cancel. I'd like for Shija to be able to get a new sponsor as soon as possible. Thank you and God bless.

Good morning Tanya, 
We completely understand. I have removed Shija from your account today as you requested. If you would like, you may write him a final letter. Please write “Final Letter” across the top of the correspondence, along with your child's name and child's number, (TZ096900234). Please send your letter to Compassion's address below:

If in the future you would like to sponsor another child, we would be blessed to partner with you again!
