What is Hosting?

Around the world, there are over 143 million children in orphanages and foster care waiting for the love of a forever family. It is easy to look at the overwhelming needs of these children and feel helpless. Many of these children have never had, or cannot remember, a normal family life, a warm embrace, a game of catch, or even a family vacation. They may not know what it is like to have a loving, caring family. Others are recent orphans due to unexpected circumstances in their lives. Unfortunately, most of the children are older than five years of age or are part of a sibling group and with each passing year are less likely to be adopted.

The good news is that you can make a lasting impact on an orphan’s life through hosting! Hosting allows older orphans from China, Latvia and Ukraine, generally school age, to live with American families for 4-5 weeks over the winter or summer. Hosting helps these children learn everyday social skills, receive an introduction to American culture and English, and experience the meaning of a family. Without hosting many of these children will “age out” of the system and never experience the life-changing love that a family provides.

Through hosting you can make a difference in the life of a child and possibly even change their live forever. Won’t you consider opening your hearts and your home to an orphan for 4-5 weeks over the winter or summer? Through hosting, you can provide a child with first-hand experience of a healthy family, unconditional love and affection, and above all the knowledge that no matter what the future holds, they have someone who cares.

Hosting is a great opportunity to invest your time, energy, and money on a human life who may otherwise never know his or her true value! Hosting will not only change a child’s life forever, but will also change your life in ways you never imagined!

Latvia and Ukraine Hosting

CCAI partners with Project 143 for a Winter/Summer Hosting Program! Pre-register today to see the orphans from Latvia and Ukraine who are available to stay with your family for 4 – 5 weeks. Families choose to host for a variety of reasons. Families considering adoption, especially of an older child, decide to host before moving forward. Some families ultimately want to adopt the child they host. Although not all children in this program are available for adoption, many children are. Additionally, CCAI can assist you as your placing agency should you host a child through Project 143 and then want to consider the possible adoption of that child.

Consider this truly remarkable way to make a difference in an orphan's life this summer!

Host Family Quotes From Previous Programs

“She was a pure joy to have in our home. She was so easy to love and she will be missed. We set out to be a blessing to her but she was the one who blessed us!”

“We are so in love with this little boy. He is funny, sweet, well-mannered boy and has such a loving heart. We feel overwhelmingly blessed that he came into our lives.”

“For us, hosting was an opportunity to share our lives and our many blessings with someone from another part of the world – someone who has not been as fortunate as we have. While people tell us we did a nice thing for her, we are the ones who have been enriched. We have been inspired by her courage and joy for life –even in the face of less than ideal circumstances.”

“This entire experience has been amazing, and one we will never forget. She will forever have a piece of our hearts. Seeing her experience new things, and have things of her own, and see her blossom has been so rewarding. This has also opened our eyes and hearts to adoption, especially adoption of an older child.”
