How often will I receive an updated photo and information about my child. I believe that I received a photo on our first anniversary but not for the second one. We keep it on our refrigerator & pray for him often. I'd like to see how he is growing.

I'm not from Compassion so I may be all wet with this, but it's my understanding that the child profies are updated every two years.

Yes every two years, if you had one after the first year, it had likely been a year before you sponsored him that his first was taken. That being said, they CAN update as soon as a year and a half and I have had that happen many times :) But 2 years is the "official" answer.  If you haven't had an update after two years then it's time to email/phone Compassion and ask for one.  Go by the date of the last update on your online account, because it'll be 2 years from the last info update, rather than photo update.  (Usually they update pretty close to the same time, but I've waited 2 month or more from the time the photo updated to when a picture did)
