Bring the Mission to your Home!
Madison Adoption Associates
Summer Hosting Programs
There are 163 million orphaned children worldwide with 5,760 more children becoming orphans each day. Once a child turns 5, they have a 5% chance of being adopted, leaving many children without a family. Our hosting program has been created to address the needs of these orphaned children.
People go on mission trips to all over the world, but we ask you to consider staying home this summer to bring the mission to your family. This experience will change the life of an orphan forever, and it will change your life too!
MAA will bring selected children, who are legally available for international adoption, to the United States for a four week stay with a qualified family. We are thrilled to provide both the children and loving families like yours with an experience you will never forget!
Madison Adoption Associates is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency formed for the sole purpose of helping children in need.
Having established an extremely successful Hosting Program in the Philippines, and due to the large number of children waiting for the opportunity to be adopted, MAA has expanded our Orphan Hosting Program into China.
A hosting program is a strategy used to identify possible permanent families for older children who have been cleared for inter-country adoption and are patiently waiting in institutions for their adoptive placement.
These children will be able to experience family life and be exposed to a more stimulating environment than in the institutions where they currently live. It is our hope that by hosting these children, the fear of adopting an older child will be dispelled and this will lead families to a commitment of permanently adopting a child,
perhaps the hosted child, into their family. Likewise, it will provide an incredible, culturally rich opportunity for the children to learn English, US Culture, and of course what it feels like to have a family.
