I began sponsoring Fernando in February and do not feel a connection with my child. I am serving at an orphanage in Bolivia and would like to give my money to the children living on the streets.

Michaela, I am deeply sorry to hear that you wish to end your sponsorship of Fernando because you do not feel connected with him. Please know that our heart is for every sponsor to have the opportunity to build a meaningful relationship with their child, and I'm so sorry that you feel you have not been able to do this with Fernando. I completely understand and respect your desire to give to another need you feel called to give to. Per your request, I have cancelled your sponsorship, and you should receive a confirmation in the mail within 2-3 weeks. We appreciate the time you have been able to bless Fernando with your loving, encouraging letters, and support. If you would like to say goodbye to Fernando, I encourage you to send him a final letter. Please write "Final Letter" along with your child's name and number across the top of your correspondence. You may send your final letter to Compassion's address below: 

Attn Correspondence Dept
Compassion International
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80997-0004

If you would like to sponsor another child in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you. Have a blessed day!
