“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling” (Psalm 68:5, NIV).Nightlight has sponsored and welcomed over five hundred children during our twenty years of orphan tours. These children have come from Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, and China. Orphan tours remain the most effective means of finding loving parents for waiting children. More importantly, they raise awareness about the needs of orphaned children, and experience the love of a host family. Another added benefit of the tour is the cross-cultural experience that the children and the host families gain, and the goodwill created between the two countries.Hosting a child from an orphanage overseas is a rewarding and enlightening experience for everyone involved. Every year Nightlight brings children to the United States. Please consider participating in the Orphan Care Summer Tour program as a host family next year.

“My name is Luba Ledri and I was adopted from Russia three years ago. I came to America when I was twelve years old in 2009. Russian folk dancing has helped me keep in contact with others who share my culture while I am also assisting Nightlight Adoption Center. The Nightlight Ensemble is a group of adopted Russian children who perform in front of an audience in many churches and other places like Disneyland. We promote our culture and adoption of older children from orphanages in Russia. Currently, I am helping Nightlight Adoption Center but I want to do more for my community, country and the world. I am hoping to get into this awesome National Honor Society program to make a difference in not only my life, but others, too.”
