To clarify, what I'm really interested in is what happens if a financial sponsor decides that they want to pick correspondence back up, but then they stop writing again. Does the child just keep getting bounced around or is there a point where a sponsor is deemed to unreliable and not given the option to continue with having a correspondent sponsor?

Hi Lindsay! If a financial sponsor decides to start writing their child, we will honor their request even if they once again stop writing. This is because we cannot anticipate their life circumstances and whether they will discontinue once they request to begin again. We do not have a point during the sponsorship in which we deem them unreliable to write. There is currently not a policy in place that requires you to write to your child in order to be a sponsor nor is there a rule that if you choose not to write, that you are required to allow us to assign a correspondent to your child. If the financial sponsor wishes to assume responsibility for writing to the child, we can encourage and suggest a correspondent but will not forbid them the right to write their child.
