Nightlight has sponsored and welcomed over five hundred children during our twenty years of hosting (formerly known as orphan tours). These children have come from Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, China and Colombia. Hosting remain the most effective means of finding loving parents for waiting children. More importantly, they raise awareness about the needs of orphaned children, and invite the children to experience the love of a host family. Another added benefit of hosting is the cross-cultural experience that the children and the host families gain, and the goodwill created between the two countries. Hosting a child from an orphanage overseas is a rewarding and enlightening experience for everyone involved. Please consider participating in our upcoming hosting opportunities.


Colombia Hosting – December 13 – 27, 2019


Nightlight is bringing 10 children from Colombia to the U.S. to do life with a family for two weeks during the Christmas holiday. Host families will have unique opportunities to share their beliefs, culture and family life as well as learn something new from their host child. Nightlight’s passion is helping older children as they are one of the most vulnerable groups of children. Therefore, children who are available for hosting range from 10 to 15 years old. Single children as well as sibling groups can be hosted. The cost is $950.

Your next step in hosting is to contact us.  For more information on hosting and adopting from Colombia, call Natalie Britton at 714-693-5437 or email
