Host a Chinese orphan in 2019
Cradle of Hope is one of a very few adoption agencies that are organizing hosting programs for Chinese orphans this year. China’s adoption authority, the CCCWA, is selecting children, ages 4 – 12, for participation in the program. The children will arrive in Washington DC for a two week visit in late November/early December.
Host Family Eligibility:
Host families should have a strong interest in adopting a Chinese orphan. You must be at least 30, no more than 50 years older than the child, and have 5 or
fewer children already in your home. You should be in reasonably good health, financially secure, and meet China’s criteria re: weight, income, net worth, and length of marriage.
The children nominated for the 2019 Bridge of Hope program are featured on our Waiting Children page [insert link]. There are boys and girls, ages 4 to 12, with diagnoses including short stature, cerebral palsy, anemia, Down syndrome, post-operative congenital heart defect, post-operative spina bifida, developmental delay, and older but healthy children.
