I have been sponsoring my child for a year and have received several letters from her, so that is awesome. She has a birthday soon, she'll be 5, and I've sent her gift already, but I was wondering when I might get an updated picture of her. They grow so fast when they are young. Also, I read somewhere that some sponsors are receiving pictures of the gifts that are purchased for the child. I'd love to see that, but didn't received one from last year's birthday.

You receive photos for all gifts that are $60 or more. And you should receive a photo update about two years after the previous photo was taken.

Sarah is correct, Sherri. :) Have you sent any gifts over $60 that you're waiting on a photo for, or have you waited for over two years to receive a photo update from your kiddo?

No, I haven't sent a single gift over $60 and I've only been a sponsor for a year.  I didn't know how it all worked.  Thanks for that info.  I was just hoping to get a newer photo of my little girl because they change so much at that age.  I was just wondering.  I'm thankful for the several letters I have received over the last year.  Thank you for your response.

Hi Sherri! I completely understand your desire to see your sweet girl more often as she grows so quickly in these young years! Our wonderful field staff are currently able to update child pictures and profiles once every two years, but we do hope to provide more frequent updates in the future. Edlawit's picture and profile was last updated in March of 2017, so you can look forward to an update soon this spring! Thank you so much for all the love you have for your sweet girl! Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Have a blessed day!
