Houston families welcome Colombian orphans

HOUSTON Orphan Hope International -- based in Stafford -- brought 17 Colombian orphans to the Bayou City on Saturday for a three-week summer visit.

The ultimate goal is to find them forever homes.

The children and their 11 host families will participate in group activities around Houston -- including an Astros game, an ice skating outing and trips to museums -- that will allow others to meet the children and help them find permanent homes.

If you are looking to adopt an older child, become an advocate on their behalf by telling others about them, or if you have interest in participating in next summer's program by hosting a child, call 888-467-3497.
