First Steps

Welcome to my blog! The purpose of this blog is to introduce you to our three precious visitors this summer—Monica (13), Diana (12) and Jeimy (10). I hope that along the way you will understand more about Kidsave and the great work they do on behalf of older orphans here in the US and internationally.

Monica, Diana and Jeimy are 3 sisters who live together in an orphanage in Bogotá, Colombia. According to their profile, they enjoy art and games, and have a very special connection to each other. They need a family who can nurture them and guide them, and especially help them stay together. Because Monica is 13, time is running out. This summer will likely be their last chance at finding a family for all three of them that they can call theirs forever.

The three girls, along with another 12 orphans ages 8-13, will be coming to the MD/DC/VA region on August 1. During the four weeks of their visit they will swim, ride bikes, share meals with our family, learn a little English, and meet a lot of folks. They’ll get to go to a baseball game and a salsa dance. Most importantly, we are hopeful that they will meet their forever family.
