Families sought for children of the world

Children of the World is currently seeking loving and nurturing families for children in China, Vietnam, Nepal, Russia, Kazakhstan, India, Ukraine and Guatemala. Dawn Radtke, international program director, will make a presentation at 6 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Zephyr Cove Library, 233 Warrior Way in Zephyr Cove Park. She will describe the international adoption process and the requirements for perspective parents. All materials and information are free.

Children of the World is a nonprofit international adoption and relief agency dedicated to giving orphans throughout the globe a chance for a better life. Responsible and loving singles, life partners and married couples have realized their dream of starting their own family, while at the same time saving a child who would otherwise face an uncertain, if not bleak future.

Mike Teel, a proud new father of a 2-year-old Russian boy said, “This was something I had always dreamed of doing. I felt that even though I was not married I was still destined to be a father. Seeing what was happening in Kosovo convinced me a child would allow me to accomplish my goal of having my own family, while at the same time giving a child an opportunity for a better life.”
