Maybe repost this in the 12-step area (I presume that's the kind of sponsor you mean). Why not get to some meetings and do it face to face? It's much easier to tell if someone genuinely 'has what you want' when you can look them in the eye and see how they interact with others.

Hi Tmullins1984,

I have a trusted friend who is 9 years sober and I have asked him to be my sobriety mentor. We check in by phone and email a few times a week and we are meeting up next week. He is someone I truly admire; he is very knowledgeable and intelligent and he has walked the walk. I feel privileged to have his mentorship and my recovery journey will be all the better as a result of his support.

I hope you find a sponor/mentor and wish you well on your recovery journey x
