Adoption grant offered for 2 teens in Ukraine

We adopted our 16 year old daughter, Vicka, from Ukraine a little over 2 months ago. Daily, she has fretted over the future of her best friend. She graduated from the orphanage this year at age 15. She has a 16 year old brother, who graduated at the same time. They both had birthdays yesterday, July 6th. Thus, they have exactly one year before they “age out” and can never be adopted. A grant has been offered that would fully pay the facilitator’s fees for the adoption of these 2 children. The facilitator’s fee is the biggest expense of an adoption from Ukraine. A family approved to adopt Vika and Dima would only have to pay for transportation, food and lodging in Ukraine, as well as the fees associated with completing their dossier here in the States. In addition, we would personally help anyone walk through the process of preparing their dossier.

We know these children and would love to tell anyone more about them. We have lots of pictures from numerous visits to their orphanage. We would also be happy to answer any questions about the adoption process itself. Please commit to pray that this brother and sister would find their forever family. They are precious children who have little hope of a future in the poor area in which they live. They both have expressed the desire for a family. Please forward this link to your friends and acquaintances. You never know but that this might be read by someone whom God has already prepared as Mom and Dad to these 2children.


  1. I would love to talk to you about this! My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years, we have a five year old that we adopted, an 11 month old bio and another bio due in Dec. I am curious what you think about a family with younger kids being able to handle the process.

  2. I have a question/favor, we have some friends going back in a few months again to adopt they are looking for a girl or girls between the ages of 9 and 11 as there adopted daughter is 12 and would like to keep her as the oldest. If you know of any would you please call me at 601-966-2494 or email me at Thanks Lynn

  3. Hey, I didn't realize you had a blog!

    Have Vika and Dima found a family yet?
