Our updated photo of Mrittika looks very different from our original photo, and the girl looks quite a bit older than 8 years old. Could we have received a photo of another child?

Hi Sarah! I am so sorry for the confusion with these two photos. I do agree that the photos look just different enough that I cannot tell if the new photo is Mrittika or not. I do think the new photo could be of a child close to age 8 as the photographer seems to be on a lower level taking the photo than if he/she was standing up. That can mess with the perception of how old this kiddo is. I am going to send an inquiry today to have the national office in Bangladesh double check the new photo of Mrittika is indeed of her because I just can't be sure when comparing them beside one another. We should receive a response with confirmation in the next six to eight weeks. Once we do, we will get in contact with you to let you know the result!

Sarah, thanks so much for your reply!  It was indeed the wrong photo.  We got a phone call from Compassion telling us that we would be receiving a new photo in the mail, and when I logged on just now a new one has already been updated.  What a quick resolution!  Blessings, Sarah

Sarah,

Could you please check my updated photo of Jonathan ID027000283 and tell me if you think it is him? I just can't recognize him. Thank you.  02235542

Hi Kris! Your sweet boy Jonathan is so adorable! These two pictures of him are taken two years apart, and a lot can change in two years! :) However, I do believe that this is indeed the same kiddo, just a bit more grown up and different hairstyle. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns. Have a blessed day!
