I have yet to receive a letter from my child and it has been at least 6 months since I have heard from her. I'm beginning to think that my time and money could be spent somewhere better than here. I would like to cancel my sponsor payments.

Tiffani, I can assure you that you have not been tricked. The letter system was implemented in April and there has been some problems with letters not showing on accounts for a while. I correspond with many other children in addition to my sponsored children and found that some of my earlier letters from this year are not on my account and some are. As far as not answering questions and a generic letter, there are some things you need to take into consideration. One, is the age of your girl. Two, writing letters is somewhat of a foreign concept to these kiddos and it can be a struggle them for a while. The new letter system pulls questions out so hopefully that will help our kiddos answer our questions. In my experience this is the case. My kiddos are answering more and more of my questions. I have found it takes at least a year to really start developing a relationship with my kiddos. Some go deeper than others, depends on the child and how much the want to open up to you. Many have been sponsored and dropped more than once so they may be more hesitant to open up. The bugs in the new writing system has slowed things down, but I am starting to see letters flowing regularly.

Please remember, Compassion is a huge organization so you may have to call back to check on things. The employees who monitor this forum have always gotten back with me on any inquiry that they have sent me. Hope this helps. God bless!
