E260 Vlad is a quiet boy but interacted well with our team and had good eye contact and smiles. His favorite animal is a hamster, and he enjoys making crafts out of paper. Vlad wants to learn how to skateboard and speak English better. Can you teach him? The team asked him if he had any questions, and his response was, "No! I just want to go!" He lives in an orphanage where children are behind in school. Many of them had little opportunity earlier in life to attend school so we felt that many of the delays were due to a lack of opportunity rather than a lack of ability. However, it could be a little of both E347 Deniis was a fun boy who smiled throughout the whole interview. He loves all animals, parrots and bunnies in particular. When he grows up, he will probably be a coal miner because that is what a lot of people do in his area of the country. He would really like to have a big house and take in stray animals. If given the chance, he would like to volunteer in an animal shelter in the US. He loves little kids and playing with Legos. He was eager to show us that he could juggle, and told us "Thank you very much" in English when we gave him balls to practice with. If he comes to your house this summer he would really like to learn how to swim. Watch out though, because this boy is a prankster! He likes to tell jokes, and surprise people by wearing crazy clothes!
E019 Anatoly “Tolya” & Ivan are brothers who are so very cute and fun to get to know! They have been offered on our program before, but despite their cuteness, they haven't been given the chance to come. Tolya says that Ivan is trustworthy, honest, and helpful to teachers. Ivan is good at sports and likes to play with animals. The boys are good friends and do a lot together. Tolya dreams of learning to drive a car, and likes to draw and play soccer. He would like to learn to play American football and swim in the ocean. Will you teach him this summer?
E184 Deniss & Lena are ballroom dancers and make a great team who performed for us! Although Deniss is quite serious and shy, Lena tried to speak some English with us. They are excellent dancers and perform and compete locally. They also both play soccer. Deniss dreams to be a professional dancer and Lena likes to cook but would like to design clothing or be a journalist.
E271 Vlada's nickname is "very small" She was very shy during her interview but did make eye contact with the translator. She loves gymnastics and loves to run and play. She likes to read fairy tale stories. Maybe you can read one with her this summer?
What is Orphan Hosting? Orphan hosting is inviting an orphan from another country to be a member of your family for a period of time. New Horizons for Children offers two Orphan Hosting Programs per year, 5-6 weeks in the summer and 4 weeks in the winter.
L062 - $1,950 Scholarship. Aleks is a happy-go-lucky teen that has basic English. He prays, enjoys music, likes helping others, and socializes easily with people of all ages. He functions adequately despite his limited vision. Aleks is a lovable character who wants a family.
L222 Aleksejs says "church is nice" and he will gladly get up early to go with his host family. Aleksejs is 20, and lives in a wonderful transition home. We truly feel rewarding these young adults by inviting them to America on the host program will have an everlasting impact. Aleksejs wants to be a carpenter or police officer. He also likes to eat, and is learning how to cook many things. He was fun to spend time with; he interviewed US! Aleksejs says if he were President he would raise salaries and give the poor jobs.
L253 Julija is to be considered as Host only. She speaks FOUR languages, English being one of them (though not so well); such a smart girl! She wants to be a psychologist when she grows up, and wants to see everything in America. She likes to read romance novels, and would decorate her room in sky blue, with no pictures and a big fluffy bed. If she was given money to buy her best friend a gift, she would buy her a dress. She has not been under state care long at all which is a blessing for her. Before the ways of the world set in for her, could you jump in and encourage her to do something BIG with her life, to keep going in the direction she has planned. To tell her that she CAN.
L060 $250 Scholarship Nikita. Do you know what it's like to be chosen last or worse yet not chosen at all? Nikita does, he's been interviewed for hosting before and was never chosen. He has a hearing problem and should wear a hearing aid in one ear, but he prefers NOT to use it. Perhaps some time in a loving environment would give him the confidence boost he needs to make the decision to wear it regularly. Nikita is very small for his age, and so he is often picked on. His social worker has nothing but good things to say about him. He excels in math and computers. He wants to learn how to paint, and train to be a mechanic. What a huge heart! Can you make room in your family for Nikita this summer?
L296 Davids & Arturs are brothers who were both very articulate, though Davids was quite animated and Arturs on the quiet side. Davids expanded on our questions and knows what he wants to say. He likes crab salad, and hip hop dancing, playing floorball. He wants to learn how to swim, and speak English. When he grows up he wants to be a magician, policeman, or pro floorball player (do they have those?). He wanted to know what our weather was like, cause he is an outside kid. Arturs likes doing art and playing with Legos, oh, and cold beet soup. He wants to learn how to swim also. IF he had money to buy himself a gift he would buy a bike. He likes that he and his brother play well together. Arturs likes Batman, and wishes he could fly. Maybe you could show these two an awesome summer full of outdoor fun!
L277 $1500 Scholarship Melanta, Lauris, Edvins, Andrejs and Daniela (descending age order) are being raised in two separate, but loving, homes . We loved this polite group; all had good eye contact, thoughtful answers, and got along while we were there. All were age appropriate and on target with their actions and interactions during the interview. Melanta speaks some English and was quick to help her siblings with their answers. If she had money she would buy her foster mom a painting. She likes drawing flowers, and dancing. She wants to improve her English. Lauris likes to play with his brother, eat pizza, and would like to buy his sister jewelry. Edvins has a best friend who is a girl! He likes potatoes, and dogs and cats. Andrejs likes sponge bob, and potaotes, but not soup. He likes to do puzzles, and was very reserved with us. Daniela does like soup, and playing cars.
Plus… introducing just a few of our new children available for the China summer host program!
C081 Jing Jian speaks very good English, and used it whenever he could. He has a friendly, outgoing, happy personality and the interview team LOVED HIM! He has a condition where his muscles involuntarily contract- especially his facial muscles and it often makes it difficult for him to speak. He seems very intelligent and was also playful as he blew kisses to the team as he left the interview. Jing Jian cannot ride a bike but would like to learn and would also like to learn to swim. He plays backgammon and chess, likes to eat apples, and his favorite animal is a leopard. We think he’d be a joy for any family this summer! C100 Ling Jun is a friendly, talkative and very social girl who is generous with her smiles. She likes dogs and cats and would like to learn to swim. Ling Jun is in a special ed school as she does have some mental delays; however she studies English and enjoys it and understood several of the interview questions when asked in English Her favorite color is red because it stands for happiness and good fortune. Ling Jun wants to be an arts and crafts teacher when she grows up and if she could be an animal for a day, she would choose to be a kitten. It was noted by the interview team that she is very short for her age- under 5'.
C108 Yu Xin is, by all accounts, a very happy boy. He was nervous and a bit more subdued during his interview but when interacting with the other children he was a ball of energy. He attends a special ed school and is a little slow, but he's smart and can fully take care of himself. Yu Xin is an active boy who thrives on attention and affection. He's full of smiles and good natured mischief, and just waiting for the right family to visit. Is it you? Dr Beverly would be happy to talk to any family interested in her evaluation of Yu Xin. She has some ideas of his diagnosis, but was not totally satisfied she found "the diagnosis".
C114 Russell is to be considered as HOST ONLY due to age of 18 and would be a wonderful addition to your summer family and beyond for school next year! He's been to the US before and accepted Christ during his visit. He now attends one of the most prestigious high schools in Beijing and does very well. His long term goal and profession if he could choose, would be as an Electrical Engineer but says that could change if he learned more about other things too. He does exceptional with little and very young children. He is very polite and mild mannered. In order for him to come, a family would need to be prepared to bring him on a student visa. Please ask your coordinator for more information.
These are just a FEW of the kids needing Summer homes. What is your HEART saying right now? Is a Summer mission trip something your family would benefit from? Are you listening to God? Note: Adoption is NOT a pre-requisite or requirement to host a child. However… More than 65% of hosted children find forever/adoptive families! Time is of the essence and the lives of these children are at stake. Please consider hosting or sponsoring a scholarship for any of these children so another family who is able to open their family and home, can bring them for a Summer Mission Trip and share the love of Christ and Family. Children with scholarships generally have an 85% chance to be hosted! Please PRAY for these children.
