Is this a person within Compassion?

I'm a fellow sponsor rather than a Compassion rep, so there's a disclaimer. That said, some of mine have names listed as primary caregiver while others list relationships like mother or grandmother. From this, I think the primary caregiver is likely to be an adult in the home who functions as guardian, whether parent or other.
I trust you will receive a more reliably accurate response soon from a Compassion rep :)

Hi Randall! The primary caregiver is almost always a relative to the child of some sort, whether that is a parent, grandparent, or aunt and uncle, etc. We have had kids who live with guardians who are not related as well, but the primary caregiver role is that of a guardian of some sort :). I'm happy to look at your child's specific information if you can give me your sponsor ID!

Mine before had listed parent mother and father.  But now it has an actual persons name.  Does that mean something happened to her parents?

Jodee, nothing happened to your child's parents. We just decided to include more information on them now. :)
