Cortlandt Manor couple taking part in special summer program called Kidsave

A couple from Cortlandt Manor is taking part in a special summer program called Kidsave.

Kidsave brings orphaned children to America to live with a host family for six weeks. At the end of the six weeks the family decides whether or not to adopt the child.

Elena Pousada and Mark Jacobs from Cortlandt Manor are hosting 11-year-old Jessica from an orphanage in Bogota, Colombia. Pousad and Jacobs say for now, until they make a decision, Jessica is having a great time doing things a normal 11-year-old does.
