Hi Sandra, How long have you been sponsoring?  It often takes as long as 4-6 months to receive your first letter from your child, sometimes longer. If you have been waiting longer than 6 months for a letter from any child you are sponsoring, you can call or email compassion directly and they can assist you in tracking the letters from your child and checking to make sure everything is in order.  Don't despair! It just takes a bit to get everything moving on a fairly predictable schedule. I hope that helps!

Hi Sandra! It looks like you are a relatively new financial and correspondent sponsor. Welcome to Compassion! We have sent one web letter to your financially sponsored child already. Since it takes two to three months for letters to go back and forth, he will receive this letter in August or September and will respond. However, your first letters from your children should come in the next four months or so. Please don't hesitate to let us know if there is any other way that we can help.
