These are just a few of the faces that Kidsave International has brought to the US from Colombia. These orphaned children have virtually no chance of being adopted in their home country of Colombia because of their age – they are 8-13 years old, which is well outside the baby and toddler stage that most families pursue when adopting. But, something magical happens when you bring them to America, where families can meet them and interact with them in person. They fall in love. And Kidsave boasts a 90% adoption rate for these kids. Amazing! Kids who would otherwise likely age out of the system find permanent families in loving homes because of Kidsave and the work that they do to care for the forgotten children.

There is much work to be done still to make sure the Kidsave Summer Miracles kids make it to Austin in 2011. There are plenty of ways to help. We are in desperate need of donations and host families. If you would like more information, or if you can help, please contact the local volunteer coordinator immediately:

The Kidsave Summer Miracles program has been responsible for more than 1,000 happy endings since 1999! We want to create at least 5 new happy endings in Austin this summer for these orphans. Let’s raise the money we need to get the kids here!
