Hi Devin! I see you just began sponsoring precious Mitu on March 31st. Thank you so very much for already writing to her! Letters currently take 2-3 months to be delivered both ways which is why you haven't received a response yet. However, we're currently transitioning into a brand new, more efficient and faster system that is designed to process letters in weeks rather than months! So you can be looking forward to this in the coming months. 

I just checked your account and please be encouraged that your letter was received and it's currently in translation! Once it's finished translating, it will be delivered to your sweet girl. You haven't received a response from her yet because it has not yet reached her. Normally, sponsors receive their first letter within the first four months of sponsorship. I see a letter on its way to you from Mitu already :). I'm so excited for you to get it! It will be an introduction letter telling you about herself, not a response to your letter you just wrote. She'll respond to that letter in her next one to you. Thanks for being so patient! The letter she wrote you is also currently being translated and you'll be able to read it through your My Account on www.compassion.com soon! You'll also receive this letter in the mail, but you'll see it much quicker online. Welcome to the Compassion family and happy writing!
