“Summer Victories” and the BVS Host-to-Adopt Program
BVS became aware of the plight of older children languishing in orphanages in need of permanent loving families. We began our “Summer Victories” program to assist children from Russia, Ukraine and Colombia in finding their “forever families.” This unique program brings older orphaned children, usually from ages 8 to 14, to the United States to experience life with an American family. The children generally arrive the first week of July, and return at the end of the month.
Similarly, BVS is working with FANA in Bogota, Colombia for our Host-to-Adopt program. All families interested in participating in the program would have a completed agency home study and training prior to the arrival of the children and families have the option of requesting sibling groups. Baker Victory Services’ staff and our partners at FANA make every effort to match families and children based on the home study and profiles of the children.
Around-the-clock support for these programs is provided by the social work and coordination team while the children are here and weekly support meetings and activities are planned. At the end of their stay, the children must return and families may then apply to adopt them. Baker Victory Services will assist you with the entire adoption process, making it as simple and enjoyable as possible.
BVS Adoption hosts individual and group informational meetings throughout the year to discuss this program. If you are interested, please contact our office at (716) 828-9636.
