Colombian Foster Child Hopes to Find Forever Home in Alexandria

Kidsave is a nonprofit organization that connects foster children ages 10-16 in need with families all over the world. During their 5-week Summer Miracles program, these children get to meet with potential forever families in person. Every summer for 5 weeks, a select number of children are granted to travel to America to meet with potential adoptive families. This is a true treat for these children, most of whom have never traveled before.

Across Kidsave’s three major headquarters, in DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles, there are currently 43 foster children from Colombia staying with host parents for the summer, 9 of whom are with families in the greater Alexandria area. Over the 22 years of Kidsave’s history, they have an 80% adoption rate for their Summer Miracles children.
