Recruit Host Families

RECRUIT HOST FAMILIES

Summer Miracles gives families a chance to get to know a child in their home for 4 to 5 weeks and helps families who are considering international adoption of an older child to determine if that’s right for them. Regardless of whether a host adopts, they spend the summer advocating to find their host child an adoptive family. If their host child is a good fit, the child’s host is given the priority for the adoption. If you are interested in adopting an older child, but not quite ready to take the plunge, Kidsave’s Summer Miracle’s program is right for you!

fund raise

Why we need to fund raise

  1. Average cost for one child's participation in Summer of Miracles, $8,000
  2. What costs are covered?

  • Travel from child's home city to Bogota
  • Room/Board, education and preparation of child in Bogota
  • Cost of travel documents
  • Insurance
  • Travel to US
  • Costs associated with chaperones
  • Travel back to Bogota
  • Room/Board, debriefing with child back in Bogota
  • Travel back to child's home city

  1. Average contribution from host family, $3,000
  2. Need - An average of $5,000 per child
  3. We try to close the gap between the costs and the host family contribution through a variety of fundraising activities including requests for corporate donations, personal appeals and a variety of other fundraising activities.
