Some families in our area will help brighten the families for orphaned children from Eastern European countries. Susan and Josh Dack of Weston, are preparing to host a Ukrainian teen. She is expected to arrive tomorrow and will stay with the Dack's through January 16th. 

The exchange program is run through New Horizons for Children which is based in Georgia. The organization is a nationwide, religious-based, orphan ministry that works with families from coast-to-coast, including Puerto Rico.

Over 230 orphans will stay with families across the country, as part of the Christmas exchange program.
