Well, I’m the first so will just give some basic information!

We adopted an older girl (11) from the Philippines in 2009.  We originally hosted her through one of the summer hosting programs in 2008, traveled in April 2009 and finalized in Aug 2009.  She is now 13 years old and our family is doing wonderfully.

My wife and I subsequently became co-doordinators of the hosting program ( and are still involved with the program.



Hi Chris,
Thanks for helping to get this set up!
I’m Beth and also one of the co-coordinators of the Summer of Hope hosting program.  It’s been a wonderful ride!
And having 8 kids (now all grown!) has been another amazing ride (but not always wonderful, for sure!).  Our kids are:  2 Black Colombian, 2 Korean, 1 Black and 1 Bi-racial (B/W) from the U.S., and 2 “home-made.”  They were adopted as older kids (ages 11/12), preschoolers, and infants. 
They are a true blessing in our lives!
