I started sponsoring two of my sponsor children, Luis and Lucas, back in November and I still haven't gotten letters from them. I know it probably sounds like I'm complaining, I just want to make sure that everything was going okay. Thank you!

Hi Madison! It can actually take up to four months to receive the first letter from your children after sponsoring them. I can see that both children have received the stationary for them to write their first letter on, so you should receive these letters within the next two months once they are returned to the country offices and processed!

I started sponsoring my first child at the end of October and she was placed on my account in November (She was sponsored at a Compassion Experience, so I had to wait for my information to be relayed to Compassion in Colorado) so I'm also awaiting that exciting first letter.  I have heard that the first letters are somewhat generic since they are written before they know much more about you than your name. Did you get a pastor's letter? I got a letter from my girl's pastor two weeks ago!
