FROM MY EMAIL: Host a Child from China

Found in my email box:

Subject: Summer Hosting Program for Chinese Orphans

Bridge of Hope is now recruiting host families for our summer 2011
program for older orphans. For the first time, Chinese adoption
authorities have agreed to send children, ages 6 to 9, from Chinese
orphanages to visit US families for summer camp and home stays of about
three weeks in July and August. The program is open to families on the
East Coast and in the Chicago area. Families in other areas will be
considered on a case by case basis. Host families must meet program and
country requirements, and have a current, completed home study by June
15.

Bridge of Hope will hold the following information sessions for
prospective host families who’d like to learn more about our program and
our children:

CONNECTICUT–Saturdays February 19, March 12

ILLINOIS–Date to be announced

MASSACHUSETTS–Saturday, February 12

LONG ISLAND, NY–Sundays February 6 and February 27

For more information on these sessions and requirements for host
