1. What is “Hosting?”
“Hosting” a child means you open your home (and heart) to a child from Colombia for 4-5 weeks in the summer (Summer Miracles) or a Los Angeles Area Foster Child for 2-3 weekends (Weekend Miracles) a month.
Hosting a child through Kidsave will give you the opportunity to meet and get to know a wonderful child in our program before deciding on adopting. After more than 20 years implementing our Family Visit Model around the world, we know that once you meet the kids, it becomes easy to be their advocates — or to become so connected that adoption is a natural choice.
“We are not alone. With Kidsave, we found a huge family that supports us in this new journey. We encourage each other by sharing our experiences, and our family continues to grow in love and strength.”
“Keep an open mind and heart and be ready to fall in love. These kids just want to be loved, be part of a family. We found our daughter through Kidsave. Every child deserves a family and we are so grateful to Kidsave.”
“I am so grateful to Kidsave for allowing me to be a part of the Weekend Miracles program, it has been a life-changing and eye-opening experience. I promise you, if you get involved with these children, you will change their life but they will also change yours.”
