I was just paid today and I was happy to be able to sponsor my Compassion child, but after I put my payment info in and submitted it, I decided to create an account. I noticed though that he isn't showing up in "My sponsorships". I was wondering why this is.

Congratulations!!!!! :) You have just changed two lives: the child's and yours! Sponsorship is an amazing journey that I am so blessed to be a part of. I hope that you will be just as blessed by it as I have.

I am not sure the exact number of days, but I do know it can take time for a child to show up on your online account. I sponsored a child through a packet (rather than online), and I think it took somewhere around 2-3 weeks for him to show up. I think it took 1-2 weeks for my online-sponsored child to show up, as well.

In about 2 weeks, you will receive a packet in the mail all about your new sponsored child. It will have his photo and lots of info about him, his country, and Compassion. There is also some stationery so that you can write him your first letter. Once he comes up on your online account, you can write him from there too.

I hope you will join a bunch of us sponsors on ourcompassion.org There we chat about many things Compassion, such as our sponsored children, their letters, our letters, visiting our sponsored children, and more! :)
