We are so glad to report that our second Ukraine adoptive family returned home earlier this month. As I’m sure you can imagine, it wasn’t the most stable time to be in Ukraine. We are proud of this family and their little girl, for staying strong and positive throughout the process.
As a Reminder, please see the Post Adoption Commitment that all families must abide by. If you have any questions, please contact our Post Adoption Counselor, Leigh Anne Graf at: firstname.lastname@example.org
