In His Hands is partnered with Madison Adoption Associates to facilitate an orphan hosting program for adoptable Chinese and Filipino children. Through the program, orphans spend a month in the United States with local families. Our hope is that participating orphans will find their forever families during their time in the hosting program.
Orphan Hosting provides an opportunity for families considering adoption to establish a relationship with a child who has been cleared for inter-country adoption, and is currently in the social welfare system awaiting adoptive placement.
Serve As An Ambassador
Families not considering adoption themselves may serve as an ambassador for an orphaned child. Hosting the child for a month, participating ambassadors give the child a chance to experience family life, while also attending “hosting picnics” where potential adoptive parents can meet the children being hosted.
We have had great success in helping participating children find their forever families during their time in our program. Roughly 90% of orphans who participate are placed for adoption.
The next hosting program for children from China and the Philippines is scheduled for June 15-July 15, 2017. We anticipate 20 Chinese children and 8 Filipino children for this summer's program. If you would like to host a child this summer, please contact Michelle by April 1st.
