New Horizons for Children

This morning I wanted to mention another way to become involved in the life of an orphan without adopting.  New Horizons for Children is an international hosting program that carefully selects orphaned children from Eastern Europe twice a year to visit and stay in the United States with Christian host families.   The children gain a glimpse of healthy family relationships, exposure to our culture, experience with the English language, and hear of God's love for them.  The children are between the ages of 10 and 15 and are at risk of aging out of the orphanage within a few short years.  The experiences they have in the United States in a healthy environment can greatly change the choices they make at 16 and are living on their own.  You do NOT have to be considering adoption to be a host family and New Horizons is not an adoption agency.
