I am sad to say that I can no longer support my 2 children due to financial hardship.  I have tried to hold on because I have gotten to know these kids but I just can't do it anymore. One of them is 18 i believe.  And the other is a senior in  highschool.  How old do you go up to for sponsorship.  I feel so bad.

Hello Rene, I am sorry to hear that you having a hard time financially. I know that this must be a difficult decision for you to make. I appreciate that you have been sponsoring these two children for so many years. The maximum age for a child to attend the program is 22. We want to encourage the children to complete high school and then go on to further their education. This way when they have completed the program, they will be able to move right in to the work force. I would love to keep you connected to your children if I can. I would be happy to take care of your contributions for three months. This would take care of February, March and April. Your contributions would resume in May. I can also cancel the $8 monthly give to the Partner's of Compassion fund and reduce your monthly contribution from $76 to $38 for the two children for an additional three months. This would be for the months of May, June and July. Your normal contribution of $76 would resume in August. This would be a gift to you for being such a blessing to Compassion all these years. You would not have to pay anything back and you would be able to continue writing with your children as normal. Your relationship with them would not be affected in any way. Please let me know if this will help or if you would still like me to cancel your sponsorship.

That would be such a blessing!!!!  Every month I pray that things will turn around.  That gives me 3 more months to have that possibility.   Thank you so much!!!  Do I need to do anything else??
