When I first becgan sponsoring children with compassion, there was little boy in Mexico who I ended up passing up for another child. I keep going back and looking for him on the US site every now and then since I know sometimes sponsorships get dropped. While I *could* also go through all the affiliated coutry sites, too, I'm rather lazy by nature. Lazy, and chaotically busy. I was speaking with an advocate this weekend while I was volunteering and she suggested I contact you all and see if there's any way to look him up system-wide from time to time to see if he's floating about. Unfortunately I don't have his child number, but his name is Froylan and I believe he's 4. is there any way to facilitate this?

Hi Lindsay! I'm happy to help with what I can. I think I may have found Froylan but he's five years old. Do you remember if he was wearing a plain white shirt and jeans?

It's very possible that he was, but I can't say for certain. 5 years old would fit, though, because I was looking last year. is there a way I could see the picture?

Lindsay, unfortunately I wouldn't be able to send you his picture as he already has a sponsor who selected him during a radio event in April. Although I am happy that he now has a sponsor, I am so sorry that he is no longer available as I know you had a heart for him :(. Regrettably, we don't currently have any other children by the name of Froylan in that age range or any that are currently waiting for a sponsor.

No problem at all! I'm glad he has a sponsor! I was just curious because if he did not and was floating around somehwere, I'd have tried to pick him up. I wasn't sure from the initial response if he has been sponsored or not. I'll peek around for him every now and then in the future in case he ever gets dropped (though i hope he doesn't!) :) Thanks for looking into it.
