China Winter “Holiday” Hosting

What is Orphan Hosting?

Orphan hosting provides children an amazing opportunity to be loved by a family and see life outside their orphanage, but more importantly, it connects potential forever families to these older orphans who may never have had a chance at being part of a family. Typically, over 75% of children who are hosted end up being adopted after their first host trip, whether by their host family or their host family’s community members, extended family members, or friends. We call these people who choose to host waiting children Orphan Warriors.

Will you consider being an Orphan Warrior for these Chinese orphans? Great Wall China Adoption and Children of All Nations are doing our VERY OWN hosting program this Winter! The approximate dates are mid-December to mid-January. Photo listings of the children available for hosting will be available in September, and more children may be added to the list at any time, so keep checking in each week. Special Focus children that may be hosted are aged 6-14 and are older and healthy or have minor to moderate special medical needs.

All Host Families who move forward with an adoption after hosting will be eligible to receive an adoption grant from Great Wall China Adoption.

We are also looking for host families for our Chinese Chaperones  traveling with the children, who will be caretakers from the children’s orphanages. There is NO COST to host a chaperone! If you are interested in hosting a chaperone and a wonderful opportunity to gain insight into Chinese culture, please let us know. For more information on the details of the hosting program, please contact us and be sure to fill out an inquiry form to get access to our photo listing. There are a limited number of children for this first hosting trip, so be sure to sign up early!

    Do you know of any programs like this that run in Australia?

    • Heidi Rogers 2:37 pm - March 24, 2016

      Dear Bek, We are only able to work with families where at least one parent is a U.S. Citizen and the other parent at least has a green card. It’s ok if the family lives outside of the U.S. So if you are a U.S. Citizen living aboard, we could help you adopt internationally. However if you are not a U.S. Citizen we will not be able to assist you due to immigration issues. If you have any other questions or want to learn more about our adoption programs than please call us at #512.323.9595.

      Have a great day!
