The adoption process in Nicaragua is challenging, and the children we have available for hosting are not available for adoption. If a family does decide to pursue adoption in Nicaragua, they work with the Nicaraguan government and the adoption agency of their choice. Frontier Horizon is not involved in the adoption process.
Hosting from Nicaragua offers the opportunity to change the course of a child’s life. Many of these kids have little hope for a future or guidance to get them there. Host families have the chance to give a child a real summer or Christmas vacation for the first time in their life. It’s an opportunity for a child to see what a real family is like and allows them to work towards a life goal. We do not work solely with Nicaraguan orphanages for the hosting program. Children from poor local communities are often not any better off than orphan children, and in some cases, their conditions are worse. Our primary goal is to: 1) develop an awareness of the poverty in Nicaragua, and 2) create a bond between a child and a host family to improve the quality of the child’s life.
After hosting, families often want to help other kids. The program helps provide for the basic needs ( food, clothing, medical and educational needs) of children other than those who directly participate in the program. From the hosting experience, we develop additional opportunities. We create mission trips for families interested in visiting their child’s country and obtain funding for self-sufficiency projects (such as agricultural training or small business classes}. Imagine the power to change the life of one child. To provide a new environment so they can grow, dream, and work for a better future and in turn, improve the lives of others around them. Please consider the potential you have to change a child’s life when you choose to host from Nicaragua.
