Colombia is a country that is well acquainted with violence and the challenges of economic struggle. As in many other developing countries the gap between the wealthy and impoverished is extreme. For those born into poverty, violence and addiction the opportunities for shaping a positive future are few. Without the intervention of a supportive and loving family many of these children will go on to recreate the dysfunction from which they have come.
Colombia has many older children, who are much less likely to be adopted. Generally, children available for hosting are 11 to 16 unless they are part of a sibling group, in which case they may be younger. Our Colombia hosting program is designed for families who are considering adopting an older child or who are interested in advocating for older children who need families.Hosting is an excellent opportunity to change a life forever! And it will also change your life in so many ways! And the hope for all is that the child will be a good match with a family and be adopted!
