I have decided to donate my bday gifts – here is my registry for doing good.
Please, BUY ME NOTHING! My bday will give a child the gift of a family.
I want to donate my gifts to the countless children in orphanages in Colombia who have lost parents due to civil conflict or abandoned due to extreme poverty.
Most of these children have little hope for adoption because they are “older” (more than 6 years old).
Colombia orphans are emancipated from the child welfare system at age 18. Most leave the orphanages in Colombia without a high school education, unable to support themselves and with no caring adult to guide them.
Kidsave is an organization committed to change their lives and I want to help!
Kidsave brings Colombian orphans to the region for a summer trip — with the goal of finding an adoptive family, and donating my gifts will help them find a family.
Kids will come to the U S in July. I am hoping that you can come with me to welcome them later. Will keep you posted.
Please help me, that will make it the best bday ever!
Here is the story of eleven-year-old Sebastian from Colombia who had no biological family of his own and, at his age, he was not likely to be adopted in his home country. But in the summer of 2018, he came to the U.S. to live with an American family for five weeks through Kidsave’s Summer Miracles program. Now he has a family!
