Hi, my name is Sophie and I am one and half years old. My doctor says that I have something called down syndrome but I don’t let that get me down! I’m a cheerful kiddo who loves being teased by my caretakers. Sometimes they’ll walk around with me in their arms, and I get to watch everything that’s going on around me! I can raise my head and roll from side to side all by myself. I’m learning to grab things and I can hold on to my own bottle while I eat. I’m so excited to find my forever family!
Hi, my name is Brooks and I am three and a half years old. I’m a little bit delayed compared to my friends, but I don’t let that get me down! I can crawl around all by myself, and I can even walk as long as there’s someone there to hold my hand! I am an outgoing, playful little guy, full of smiles. When I hear music that I like I happily wave my hands around. I really enjoy cuddling. I can’t wait to meet my forever family so we can listen to music and play together.
Hi, my name is Heidi and I am almost four years old. A couple of years ago some nice doctors operated on me to help with my CHD, and I am feeling much better! I’m still a little bit behind my friends, and my breathing is a little bit fast, but I don’t let that hold me back! My caregivers like to help me get stronger by doing special physical activities with me. I have an outgoing personality and a great sense of humor. I play well with my friends and especially enjoy playing with toys that are bright, colorful and have fun sounds. I love listening to music and dance when I hear a song that I like. One of my favorite toys is an electronic organ and I play with it a lot. I can’t wait to meet and play with my forever family!
Hi, my name is Dashiell and I am two years old. My doctor told me that I have a condition which makes my muscles a little bit tense. I’m not walking yet, but I can sit up and play with toys all by myself. I am a jovial little guy who likes to smile and cuddle with my caretakers. One of my favorite things to do is play on a toy piano. I love it when my caretakers read me stories. Bath time is really enjoyable for me, as I like to pat and splash the water. I can’t wait to meet my forever family.
Hi there! My name is Callie and I just turned 2 years old! My doctor says I have a condition where one of my eyes doesn’t always look in the right direction, but I don’t let that get me down!

It’s official! The 2015 Summer Hosting Program is starting off with a big bang! We have already matched some really great kiddos thanks to our VIP families that registered early. We only have 40 spots available and as of this evening there are 36 spots available which will decrease by several over night.
Visit our hosting page here to request a password and begin looking at all of the sweet children ready to visit America.
Please reach out to our matching team today if you are interested in being a part of the 2015 Hosting Experience. Our hosting program has so much to offer for those who are looking for a way to give back to these sweet children.
We need families that are looking to host to adopt, or host to advocate. What does host to advocate mean? It means bringing a child into your home for the summer and giving them the experience of a family. But more than that, it’s getting to know them as a person to help in the advocacy efforts of finding them a forever family. It’s sharing that child’s story with your friends, family and community in efforts to find that child’s forever family. It’s committing to that child wholly knowing you will not stop until you find the family that can best serve that child’s needs. It’s being that child’s advocate.
We also need families as back up host families. Unforeseen circumstance occur, and situations present themselves that not everyone can handle. In case of an emergency we need families all over the united states ready to take action in the event the child can not stay the entire time with their original host family.
We need chaperone host families. Families that want to open their home to one of the caretakers that will be traveling with the children. The adults that travel with children also need a place to stay, you could provide that for them at no cost to your family.
We need home safety visit providers, approved individuals that can help families get their home approved for hosting a child.
Lastly we need advocates, we need people like you that are reading this right now because you care about the children, to share the hosting program information with people you know. You can share a child’s photo listing photo on your Facebook, twitter, etc. Help get these kid’s faces out there so we can find their host family and potential forever family!Read More
