His last update was January 2015. My child is 16 years old this month and he lives with his grandmother. His mother doesn't live with him, but I was told from Compassion rep that his mother supports him. She bakes bread in another city. The new information, which was updated on August 1st and August 16th says she is a laborer now and it doesn't say she bakes bread anymore. So, I am guessing his mom lost her job as a baker or changed her job. Also, it says in my account, his mom supporting him is now "unknown". Also, my child is not advancing from school. It seems like something happened to his family or there has been big changes in his family. I am keep thinking what would have happened to him especially looking at his recent photo compared to 2 years ago, he got so much skinnier and looks very weak and tired.
I might be thinking too much, but here is what I am guessing and please let me know if an of these are right.
After the separation with my child's father, his mother went to another city to work as a baker. She met a new guy and had 3 children. She recently lost her job as a baker and is not a laborer. She earns less and now not able to support my child as well as her 3 children. Thus, my child being the oldest, he has to work more and got skinnier and weak. And he was not able to advance in school because he has to work and take care of these children.
These 3 children are my child's aunt or his relatives' children. And same thing, lost support from his mom and my child has to work, so not advancing in school since 2014 and in the same grade for 3 years ( starting from this Sept as well).
I sent my child a family gift and birthday gift in June. Receiving some monetary gifts made them allow to have more relative children in their house.
He had siblings and they were working at someone else's home like taking care of animals and now they cameback home.
I am really confused and curious about all of sudden living with 3 more children in his house and his mother's job change. I was keep thinking something must have happened to him getting so skinny and weak and not advancing in school past couple of years. Especially all of sudden he is not doing well in school since grade 5. And I feel like his family situation is causing him in both physically and academically. He is visually impaired and I am worried that his family situation is making him fall behind in school all of sudden.
If I knew this, my letters would have been different and I would have planned to send his family more family gift. I sent my sponsored and correspondent child a family gift depending on the number of their family. Is there any way to find out about this? I would especially like to know who those 3 children are.
