I have been sponsoring my little boy in Ghana since January. I got a picture of my child in my initial correspondence from Compassion, but I was just wondering if and when I would get more pictures of him? I very much look forward to his letters and drawings, but I would love to have more pictures of his sweet face! I am anxious to watch him grow over the years!

Yes, yes you will get more photos.
Compassion gets official updates with photos every two years.

You can find out when your next scheduled update will be once you log into your online account (https://www.compassion.com/my-account/sponsorships-detail.htm).
Below is an example of what to look for from my online account.

would this be the only oppurtunity to receive pictures of a sponsored child?

This will be the only "official" opportunity for a photo. However, if the project has access to their own camera, you may get photos throughout the year of your sponsored child. I send my guy, Jepsen, a birthday gift each year, and each year I get a photo a few months later with him holding the items he bought with the gift.

You may also find photos from other sponsors who may have visited your child's project (for a sponsor tour or mission trip for example) at http://ourcompassion.org/.
