My sponsor child wrote me, and I sent a letter back. Both show up in my app. But she has not written me back. It says I have not written a letter in 103 days, but I have not heard from her so I have not written back. Is that normal? For it to be more than three months between hearing from her? My other sponsor child we have written five or six letters back-and-forth, in the same timeframe.
Hi Jennifer! Thank you very much for your concern for your sponsored child, and for reaching out to us. Are you referring to your sponsored child, Erika? I do see that it has been about four months since you've heard from her. According to our records, sadly, a letter sent from you to her back in September was cancelled, due to our field office only receiving a partial letter from you. I am so sorry for that inconvenience, but it looks like Erika did not receive that letter from you. That may be why it's been a while since you've heard from her, as children will write more when they receive more letters from their sponsors. Again, I am so sorry that the letter you wrote in September did not make it to Erika and that no one contacted you about that. I would certainly encourage you to write another letter to her! If you go more than six months without hearing from her, let us know, and we can send a note to her center.
Do you know why the last one was canceled? It shows up in my app. I put a lot of time and energy into those letters. I wrote a similar one to my other child in Africa, she received hers. Not sure why Erika would not have received hers. I included maps, and pictures and a couple hand written notes. It was several pages.
