I sponsor an 11-year-old girl in India. It is a relatively new project and, while I get regular letters, most are written by a project worker on behalf of my child. In several of the letters the child has been "out of station" but in the last one I was told that "her handwriting is not so good" and that is why the child isn't writing herself. I have received a letter written by the child and her handwriting is fine. I know another sponsor who has a child in this project and she is experiencing the same thing and was also told her child's handwriting was "not so good" (exact words). I appreciate the effort this devoted worker has put into all of these letters, but I would like to hear from the child. Another thing that bothers me greatly in this situation is that this child's parents are limiting her attendance at the project. In the last letter the worker alerted me to this situation and I had suspected it from previous letters. Should I do an inquiry? I have many other Compassion kids and she is the only one who doesn't write (who is old enough) and who doesn't attend project regularly.

Leslie, I am so sorry but I just looked in the ciinfo email inbox and I did not see any emails from you. In looking at your account, I show that we have not received one from you prior to this. I just sent you an email from my personal email. Please reply to my email with the attachments and I will send the inquiry for you today.
