The precious children listed below are all currently in the U.S. on a hosting program. Sadly, none of them have found committed families (yet!).
Some have special needs. Others are aging out and the time remaining to find a family is so short. And then there are those who have been hosted for several years and have still not been chosen!
All of them with one thing in common….
A longing in their hearts for a family to call their own!
Breaks my heart!
I cannot imagine being a young person, coming to this country, spending time in a home with a family…and then returning to the four walls of an orphanage–feeling rejected because no one chose them! Excruciating! It does NOT have to be that way.
Please, body of Christ! We seriously need to rally for these children. I KNOW there are amazing families out there who would adopt them…they just need to find them. Can we please use our voices, our social networks, and our contact lists to spread the word?
I believe that every child deserves the love of a family! These darling children are begging their host families for someone to bring them home forever.
PLEASE LET’S HELP THEM!
POST, SHARE, TWEET, FACEBOOK, SEND E-MAILS…PLEASE. Spreading the word is the only way they are going to find families!
I cannot stand the thought of any one of these children returning to their home country without hope. We’re all called to do something to “care for the orphan”…even if it means just sharing their story in the hope that someone will see it and say yes!
From the bottom of my heart…thank you for caring.
Praise God! Kate has a committed family!
This will probably be Kate’s last hosting and her future looks to be that of a boarding school if she is not adopted soon. She is about the size of a seven year old and will not do well in this type of environment. After boarding school, her future would likely be that of a trade school if she’s lucky enough to get into one; however, a staggering number of orphan children are turned onto a life of prostitution and crime in order to survive and 15-20 percent will commit suicide by the age of 25. This CANNOT happen to Kate!
An adoption fund has been started for her, which is currently at $300 and is growing.
For more information on adopting Kate, please contact Kelly Barth with Adoption Related Services at (770) 514-7324 or to make a tax-deductible donation to Kate’s Adoption Fund, you can contact Tabitha Butler at email@example.com and I will get you the information on how to do that.
Age: 14 (will be 15 in October)
Dzintars would do well in any family. He bonds easily and is desperate for a family to call his own! He’s got a stellar personality and is up for anything! He’s happy to try new things or experience new things, he’s brave, he’s kind, he’s SOOOO funny and easy going. It has been a joy to have him in our home. He’s eager to learn English and gets along well with our two young children (ages 4 and 2) as well as some kids his age that I’ve connected him with. He desires to learn to swim and has worked diligently in his swim lessons to accomplish his goal.
He likes America very much and has expressed on numerous occasions that he desires to stay here. I cannot say enough good things about this child! He loves all sports, especially baseball and soccer. He’s kind to animals, helpful around the house and inquisitive about how things work. All this kid desires is a family to call his own! Could you be the answer to his prayers?
If you are interested in learning more about him, please contact me and I can give you a link to my blog for a very detailed account of our hosting experience.
I would love to share more of his personality with anyone interested. Everyone who has met him seems surprised by how easy going he seems. He has been a joy to get to know.

William is an 8 year old boy with the cutest, sweet smile. He is polite, kind, helpful and has a great sense of humor with a contagious laugh. He is also seems to be very gentle. William is an engaging child, who is alert and aware of what is happening around him. He joins in to activities easily and seems to catch on to them quickly. William seems like a well-rounded child. He likes to do physical activity, but also will sit quietly and draw, color and read with good focus. He has enjoyed picking out stacks of Russian and English books at the library. He enjoys swimming, rock wall climbing, and playgrounds. William seems very athletic and well coordinated – when rock climbing, he even did gymnastic flips and rolls onto the crash mats that astounded everyone.
William came to the orphanage about a year ago from a shelter and no one has ever come to visit him or contacted him. He is truly alone. His teachers say that he may have some learning disabilities. However, he tries very hard in school and in our lessons at camp.

Country: Eastern Europe
Sergiy is full of joy and love, rarely is there not a smile on his face. His greatest desire is to have a forever family to love and adore him. He turns 16 in Oct. so this is his last chance! He needs a family to act fast for him! (paperwork must be in process before he turns 16). Sergiy appears to have some learning difficulties and possibly has FAS (though has not been tested to be conclusive). He will thrive in a family where lots of attention is able to be given. He is beginning to pick up some English, I think he would be able to grasp it fairly well if one-on-one time could be spent without any outside interruptions. He does not like any type of outside noise when he is trying to read or learn. As with most kids, he does not like it when he does not get what he wants, and will let you know. However, he is also full of “I love yous” and hugs and kisses. He loves music, photography and food! He can be the absolute sweetest loving guy ever, but he also can display anger and mood swings. He needs a family who can give him a lot of love and attention. He would be best in a small family with children ages 10 and over, that understands special needs children, or as an only child.

This boy is such a joy and brought our family a lot of love and laughter this summer. Toms has been in a stable, loving foster family since he was 3 years old. Because of this, he knows how to function as a member of a family, receive love and form relationships. We have 3 young boys and he bonded very well to all 3 although it took a little longer with the younger 2. Toms has a huge heart and was very helpful with all of our children. Toms is social and comfortable around large groups of people. He does have lots of energy but I wouldn’t label him hyperactive. Like any young boy he just needs outlets for his energy, and loves swimming in both a pool and the ocean, bike riding, scooters and being outside. While at the ocean, Toms played for hours in the waves and seemed to really be at peace there. When trying to deal with things he didn’t like, things didn’t go his way or if he just needed a break, Toms would go to his room and play legos, trucks or puzzles. Toms really loved playing with dump trucks in the sand at the beach and our sand box.
He speaks Latvian, Russian and his English exploded while he was here as he was incredibly motivated to learn and try new things. Toms will do amazing in a family! He should be available for hosting again at Christmas through New Horizons for Children and we’ve been told he has been cleared for International Adoption.
Thought I’d throw in here that Toms will bless your socks off. He is an amazing young man and the only reason we’re letting him go is that after lots and lots of prayer, the Lord said he wasn’t ours. Please help us find his forever family!
