Is there some way I can notify CI to release this child to others who can sponsor instead of me because I expected to be able to sponsor but now I can't. I have not filled out and submitted the card. What happens when a card is not turned in? Does this child just wait forever for me to fill it out? My situation has changed and I don't foresee becoming a sponsor now.

Hi Chris! I'm so sorry to hear that your circumstances have changed and are preventing you from sponsoring a child. Please rest assured that all of our child packets at events have a "return by" date. If we do not receive the child's packet by that date, then the child is released from that event and they are made available at another event. Therefore, you may either keep the packet or you may choose not to keep it. Either way, the child you have chosen would have been on the existing event hold for a period of time whether you had chosen to sponsor them or not, so please do not worry about keeping their packet :). Thank you for your heart to help children in need! If in the future you would like to sponsor a child, we would be blessed to partner with you!
