It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Not a Coincidence

Michael and I had decided to take a break from fostering and hosting. Yet somehow we both were looking at the New Horizons for Children photo listing....

One morning I sent him a message and said that I was seriously thinking and praying about hosting again. I asked him to pray about it.

His reply, "Me too. I have one in mind already."

He sent me this picture.

It was the exact girl that I was praying about!

There are hundreds of children like this one who still need to find host families for the summer. The deadline for hosting is May 4th. If you have been considering it, don't wait any longer!

You can see a picture of the kids and read a short biography of each one after you fill out a short pre-application. No one will hound you or ask you for money. If you don't host, no one will judge you! There is literally nothing to lose by just applying and taking a peek around. (If you find a kiddo you are interested in, you can contact your regional coordinator, who is is a good friend of ours, and she can provide you will even more specific information. Again no pressure! She won't pressure you into hosting.)

We hadn't planned on hosting...but we did.

And we are forever thankful for that opportunity.

You see this adorable girl in the picture is our daughter!

Here are a few kids that are still looking for host families...maybe one will catch your eye!
