Holt’s Child-Centered Approach
We believe that every child needs and deserves a permanent, loving family. What is best for every orphaned and abandoned child is, however, as unique as every child. When considering a child’s future, Holt always keeps the child’s best interest at the forefront of every decision. Holt International pioneered the modern era of international adoption, but Holt is much more than an adoption agency. We also develop and maintain programs overseas to give orphaned and abandoned children safe and nurturing environments in which to grow and thrive while we find their loving family.

WILL YOU TAKE FIVE WEEKS TO CHANGE A CHILD’S LIFE?
Holt is partnering with KidSave for a Colombian hosting program this summer—June 27-August 1, 2019. As the Director of Holt’s Colombia Program and a Colombian myself, I am personally very passionate about this program - but anybody who meets these children quickly becomes passionate about finding families for them!
Children who are ages 11-14 years are at risk of aging out and are no longer eligible for adoption if we don’t find families for them soon. My heart breaks when I think of what lies ahead of a child without a family of their own. For this reason, we have partnered with Kidsave’s hosting summer program, to help find families for these children.
We know when you and others meet and interact with these children, you too will see how lovable they are and how they belong in a family. We need your help to communicate that message to those who may consider adoption, but have been afraid of the unknown. Meeting and getting to know a child while in your home is a great way to mitigate that unknown, but we need your help to be a host to give these children a chance.
We want to invite you to consider hosting this summer! Whether you are or are not considering adoption, you can help us advocate for these children while they are in the US so they can indeed find their family! We are eager to work with families across the US. Whether you are single or not, all families are welcome to host. If this isn’t something you can commit to, we ask if you could please help us spread the word among your friends, family, and community. We hope to give some children from Colombia a vacation of their lifetime… and perhaps help them find a family in the process.
