I have seen on the blog here that people have requested additional information on their sponsored children, such as past photos, and a history of sponsorship/gifts.  I would like this information on the the two children our family has just sponsored, as well as any information about the center they belong to, their community, and any special needs of the children, family or center.  I would also like to know how far in advance a birthday gift should be made, and the time frame in which those gifts are received, since Kensi's birthday will be coming up in a few months.  My children and I are very excited about being a part of Josue and Kensi's lives!  Their dad was from Honduras, and we still have family there, so we feel a special connection with these two beautiful kids!  Maybe we will get to visit them someday!

  Our sponsored children are:

Josué Isaí Santos Reyes - Child ID: HO3730102
Kensi Sarahí Enamorado Membreño - Child ID: HO3730123

and they both are participants at CDI Futuros Gloriosos

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Jean! Welcome to Compassion. I am happy to send you Josue and Kensi's prior photos that we have on file. Our system only holds two photos per child at a time, so we have only the current photo and one prior photo. I'll send you those prior photos today. The best place to see all of the information that we have on your child, their project and their community is to create an account online and click "my sponsorships". At the bottom of each child's information, you'll see a section that is called "Step into your child's world." This section gives all of the information that we collect on each child.

Thank you for sending birthday gifts! These children rarely receive gifts for their birthday and are so excited and blessed to get a gift from their sponsors. We recommend sending any cards, letters and monetary gifts two to three months prior to the birthday to ensure it's delievered in time.

Thanks, Haley, for responding.  I have reviewed all the information for the two children on my online Compassion account, but could you please fill me in on any past sponsorships that they have had or gifts given.  I couldn't find anything about that.  Maybe I missed it, or didn't look in the right place, but  I'd like to know what their history is with Compassion.  Do we know if their families have any special circumstances or needs?  I am getting some packets with paper crafts and things together now, to get out in the mail to them.

Hi j w! Each child's history is regrettably not listed on your account. It looks like we emailed you this information earlier this morning. Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.
