Hi Leslie, I'm sorry that you haven't heard from your sponsored child yet. It can be a long wait sometimes though. You should get a first letter from your child within 4 months of sponsoring him or her and then at least once every 6 months after that. If you have waited longer than that, you can call Compassion and they will instruct the project to have the child write right away. I hope that you hear from your child soon!
Hi Leslie, Good Question. I have learned to be patient while waiting on the child(ren) letter(s). Regardless of when you receive, I encourage you to write to the child(ren) once a month to keep the consistent flow going. God Bless.
