I started supporting Shahina 7 months ago and I have not received any communication at all from her or anyone who works with her. I contacted Compassion by phone over a month ago and the person on the phone said that was very strange and I should hear something from someone soon. Still nothing. Has anyone else had this problem?

The only time that happened to me (My -first- sponsorship. Such bad luck) The girl was pulled out of the project just at the 7 month mark -- after I requested they make an inquiry but before I saw any letter.  I have to figure the family had been having second thoughts and thinking this way already, and so she'd been missing a lot of meetings and thus never there to write a letter.

I still miss her. I was so ready to get to know her.

This is my first child I’ve sponsored. My daughter was very much looking forward to being a “pen pal” with her.

I'm sorry it is not turning out so well.  If you like writing (as a family) you might look into the Correspondent program. You can write to children that someone else sponsors, but does not want to write to.  It can help to have more than one to write to and pray for when the dry spells happen.

Hi Amanda! I am so sorry that you haven't received a letter from Shahira yet :(. We did send an inquiry to our office in Bangladesh to check on her and have her write a letter to you, but it can take up to eight weeks for us to receive and process the letter. I do see that the inquiry is being worked on. Once we receive the reply from the office there, we will contact you with the letter :).
