Angels to Touch Down in Dallas this December
Seven Colombian orphans will make the trip of a lifetime as they travel to Dallas for a three-week visit with American host families from December 5-26, 2013.
The program also helps raise awareness about the need for adopting older children and children who are part of a sibling group, said Denise Schoborg, director of Dillon International’s Colombia program.
“Every night in Colombia, approximately 60,000 children in the care of the country’s child protection system fall asleep uncertain of what the future holds for their lives. Sadly adoption for most of these children will never come true in their birth country, where the majority of adoptions involve young, healthy children,” Schoborg said.
“We have the opportunity to change these children’s lives dramatically through adoption,” Schoborg added. “Every child deserves the love of a family.”
Dallas area host families are still needed for the program and free interest meetings are scheduled from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. May 30 and 6 – 7:30 p.m. June 10 at the Buckner Children and Family Services campus in Dallas.
