KidSave: LOVE this idea- Families host an orphan from anther country for 5 weeks in the summer....during those 5 weeks, the child meets prospective parents that might adopt him or her.

Kidsave’s model gives older, overlooked foster youth and foreign orphans short-term visits with families for a summer or weekends. Family Visits have successfully found adoptive families and permanent connections for older kids who otherwise would have no chance of finding a family. http://www.kidsave.org/about-kidsave/kidsave-mission/kidsave-family-visit-model/
