We got our welcome packet a few weeks ago but nothing else. Sent a few letters online but nothing. Is this normal?? I am seeing a lot of negativity and it is starting to worry me. Answers would be great. Thank you.

Hi, Jessica! Thank you for your support and for writing your sponsored child. I am a sponsor too, but can answer your questions. We sponsor 5 kiddos and correspond with many more kiddos. Your first letter will usually arrive by 4 months into sponsorship. These letters are usually introductory letters that may have been written prior to your sponsorship or before your letters arrive. Compassion has been working for about a year to improve the letter system so correspondence is quicker and more efficient. Unfortunately, there have been several problems with this system and they are still working on getting all the kinks out.

It can take a while for letters to travel between the projects and the country offices. It also takes a bit to develop a relationship with your child and for letters to start regularly flowing, but when it is so worth the time and effort! Our kids are such blessings to us and it is so rewarding to have them tell you how your letters are special to them or that they help the in some way. Please hang in there, if there is one thing I have learned in our years of sponsorship is that God uses sponsorship to teach us patience! God bless!
