The Best Christmas Gift of All: An Orphan Hosting Story

New Adoptees: What is This Thing You Call Sleep?
Why host an older orphan? Older orphans ages 6 to 13, especially those with medical conditions, are often forgotten. These children are often overlooked due to their ages and their medical conditions, and many will age out without knowing the love and support of a family. Through hosting, older orphans are provided with the opportunity of a lifetime, four weeks with an American family to experience things they may have never had a chance to do growing up in an institution (going to the zoo, a museum, or movies, riding a bike, swimming, jumping on a trampoline, etc). Watching their faces light up at seeing a zebra in the zoo for the first time or learning to ride a bike or pump their legs on a swing are unforgettable moments! Most of all, hosting provides these children with hope for their futures. Think of the difference you could make in the life of a child!
This past winter 25 orphans were hosted through CCAI’s China Hosting Program. The four precious weeks that the host children and their host families spent together over the holidays was a life changing experience, and the memories that were created will last a lifetime!
