What Is Hosting?

Consider Changing a Life

Adoption is not for everyone, but caring for orphans is for everyone

What is Hosting

Hosting involves welcoming an international orphan into your home for 4 weeks. During this time, they will experience family life away from an orphanage or foster care.

Advocate Adoption

It is imperative that each orphan finds a "forever family". We strive to make this happen during the hosting process. Hosts will reach out to friends and family, and create opportunities for families considering adoption to interact with the host child.

Our Partner

We partner with Project 143 to help recruit and fund families in their compassionate attempt to rescue orphans. Project 143 connects hosts with orphans in need of adoption, while we help them raise the money.

The Hosting Experience

The kids that are coming are so brave! I think about coming to an unfamiliar country, not knowing where they will be staying or who they will be staying with. Pushing past fear and uncertainty for the hope that is on the other side. They deserve a standing ovation...or at the very least a big hug.

What You Need To Know

Older Orphans

The children we seek families for are between the ages of 6-16. Through our partner, Project 143, we are working with orphanages in Latvia, Ukraine, and Kyrgystan, where these children "age out" of the system at 16 years old.

Why Hosting?

If left for adoption in their own country, many of the children have less than a 1% chance of finding a home. However, once hosted, there is nearly a 70% chance they will be adopted into a loving family.


It costs $2,950 to host an orphan for 4 weeks. This consists primarily of transportation and administration expenses. Our foundation provides grants up to $2,000 to help ease the financial committment. Many families are able to raise the rest through other fundraising alternatives. We are dedicated to making sure that finances don't hinder a family's willingness to reach out to a child in need.
