UKRAINE  CHRISTIAN  ADOPTION

UKRAINE CHRISTIAN ADOPTION DONATION PROJECT

Our prayer is that God blesses one thousand U.S. Christian families and direct them our way so that many dear Ukrainian orphans could be adopted during a period of time into loving Christian homes. By starting this project, we commit to donate $US 1,000 with each of these 1000 families. As a matter of fact, this amount will be included in our program fees. We will take it from our reasonable fees and donate it on your and our behalf.

OUR DONATIONS:

Special thanks to Mr. Dermot and Mrs. Sally O'Brien. They came to adopt in October 2002 and adopted a girl from Kharkiv. As they chose our services, the orphanage in Kharkiv, where their daughter was adopted from, received 5,000.00 hryvnas donated by us. The director of the orphanage was very encouraged by these little extra funds, as orphans badly needed winter boots.

Special thanks to Mr. Henry and Mrs. Karen Pritchett. While they have not yet come to adopt, they made their funds available right away. Half of what we plan to donate, 2,500.00 hryvnas, was already directed to help provide prosthetics for a little girl, who was brought to Kiev from her orphanage specifically for that purpose. The remaining 2,500.00 hryvnas will be donated when this family actually comes in Ukraine. It is planned for the first half of January 2003. Please pray for them and the child that God would place on their hearts.

As of now, March 2003, the family has asked to reschedule their travel date twice due to different reasons and have finally decided to pull out of the program. However, the family has made every effort to ensure that the donation money would help some orphan in Ukraine. Our decision was to direct the remaining 2,500.00 for tuition coverage of a very talented special need orphan seeking a degree from the Kiev-Mogyla Academy.

Special thanks to Mr. Gary and Mrs. LaurieAnn Marks. They came as Independent adopters early December 2002 to adopt two children, a sibling group of a boy and a girl, again from Kharkiv, but from a different orphanage. Because they chose our services, orphans will have new custom-made children tables. The orphanage director said it was the major need she could not fund otherwise.

Special thanks to Mr. Wendell and Mrs. Denise Carroll. This family came to us at the very last minute. Doing their adoption independently with us, they went to Khmelnitsky orphanage where they met their new son. Parents of 5 children now, Wendell and Denise already started considering a possible return to Ukraine. Wow! The donation money was going to be used by orphanage administration for daily needs.

Special thanks to Mr. Darrell and Mrs. Donna Lemons. After spending a month in Ukraine, this family returned home with FOUR children. It was quite difficult for us technically and emotionally for the family as we completed THREE individual adoptions in one trip. In the beginning, the family adopted 3 sibling brothers. One was staying in Kramatorsk and the other two in Maryinka. Later, the family made a decision to adopt siblings' oldest brother. This time they completed the whole new adoption process in Maryinka again. 

The donation was split in half between two orphanages - Kramatorsk and Maryinka. The Kramatorsk orphanage director was especially happy to learn about our plans as he long waited to accumulate enough funds to purchase and install an industrial sized centrifugal machine for the orphanage. There was even a separate bank account for that purpose alone. We were just happy to help

Special thanks to Mr. Ray and Mrs. Lori Walker. They adopted their son in September 2003. Their contribution was donated to help Maryinka orphanage where they adopted their son and to support special-need orphaned students in their tuition and stipend needs.

Special thanks to Mr. Clayton and Mrs. Natasha Bingham. Though their adoption process was very intense as we were adopting two of their new sons from two different towns that were 3 hours away from each other, they were able to complete everything very quickly. They chose to even add some of their own funds in addition to what has been allocated for donation project. Two orphanages, in Bogoduhiv and Sahnovshina of Kharkiv region, received a brand new computer and clothing respectively. As our continuous effort, they also agreed to support special-need orphaned students of top Ukrainian universities.

Special thanks to Mr. Roland and Mrs. Cynthia Goodfellow who came in Ukraine in October 2003. They chose not to continue to pursue their adoption in Ukraine. However, they eagerly became a part of our project.
