This past July, we met Mihails.  He is an orphan from Latvia that is part of the Open Hearts and Homes for Children hosting program.  Open Hearts and Homes for Children (OHHC) is a non-profit Christian organization consisting of volunteers who have been touched by the plight of children growing up in institutions and foster homes in Eastern Europe. OHHC provides institutionalized children with a unique vacation experience to share the love and life of a Christian family, enjoy recreational and cultural activities, and make long term caring relationships.

Our family has been richly blessed by OHHC's hosting program.  It is the same program where we hosted our Lat4.  M literally jumped off the page when I saw him.  I knew he was meant to be here with us.  Hosting isn't cheap.  Let me share the expense of it.

Hosting expenses - $2,700 ($5,400 for Summer and Christmas)

Gifts for him to take back - $300+

Gifts for his foster family - $200+

Suitcase and backpack to send back - $100

A month worth of clothes, food, activities, etc. ... $400+

So, as you can see.  Our love is strong to want to do this for M. Almost $4,000 per hosting period when you total everything up.  However, he feels like family and he is worth it.

Would you please consider helping us off-set a few of our expenses by buying a raffle ticket fora $250 gift certificate for Amazon.com

Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20.  

We are keeping this raffle open until our next $750 payment is due towards the hosting fees ... November 1, 2013.  Everyone donating over $50 will receive a free t-shirt.

Thank you all for help us to bless our son, so far away, but home before we know it. :-)  God is good.
