I have a two specific questions.
1) Is there a way to find out if any letters and/or pictures are on their way to me? The only letter I have received is the general one they send in the very beginning.
2) How can I become a correspondent for a child with a sponsor who does not write to them?

How long has it been since you received the last letter? It does take some time for the flow of letters to get moving.  IF it has been 6 months, they will send an inquiry to find out what is going on. Once it does, when I am writing regularly, I generally get letters from my kids every 2-3 months.

Hi Kyani, 

I see that you did hear from your precious Teya in October when you began sponsoring. Sometimes, especially in the beginning it does take some time for kiddos to get that relationship going and it can take a bit longer for you to receive a letter. Regrettably, we do need to wait a full six months from that date we received that last letter in order to send an inquiry. However, I am able to let you know it does look like a letter is in process. :) 

Secondly, in order to become a correspondent, you just have to agree to write that child at least three times per year. If you would like, I can add you to the correspondent wait list to be linked with a kiddo in need. Do you have any specifics on age, gender or country for this kiddo? 

Thank for getting back to us! We look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Kyani! I have added your request to the wait list today. :) As soon as a child becomes available, we'll get you two connected! You should expect to have a kiddo to write to by the end of the week. :)

That's great there is a wait list. I will take that to mean most Sponsors are writting. My first two kids from years back would have benefited from your kindness Kyani.
