Partner With Us To Adopt Our Boys
Yura and Pasha arrived in America with nothing but hope. They left with our hearts.Please help us bring our Boys of Summer home forever.
The cost of international adoption is almost overwhelming. After reimbursements from our employers, the approximate minimum expense of adopting our boys is $26, 720. The breakdown includes: Intercountry adoption fees, travel expenses, Ukrainian in-country costs, home study fees, and governmental filing fees.

We have been home from Ukraine since September 15th. While we were away, our dear community friends pulled together a team of volunteers to renovate a larger home and move our belongings. We came home to a lovely surprise ~ Logan and Daniel have their own bedrooms and I have room to cook and homeschool and entertain guests.
On Wednesday evening, we had our first dinner party ~ for the volunteers who helped to give us the gift of a newly renovated home. Unfortunately, we evacuated on Thursday because of Hurricane Matthew, but came home today to a dry and debris-free property! God has continued to bless and protect us. We are all so very thankful.
We just wanted to take a moment to again sincerely thank each and every person who contributed toward our adoption fund. Our hearts (and proverbial "plates") are full as we launch into the job of full-time parenting. It's not easy every moment of every day, but it is definitely rewarding in countless ways we could never have imagined. We love our sons and are ever so grateful to those who helped us wade through our fears and spurred us toward our goal with your time, prayers, encouragement and dollars.
We feel that our Ukraine journey is not over. We would like to continue to advocate for other orphans. Our son, Logan has a best friend who is available for winter hosting, along with his younger brother. Perhaps you, or someone you know would like to bring them to America this Christmas, or forever. Or maybe there is a child available through HostUkraine whose life could be forever changed because of your gift of time and love. Please view and share this link if our story has inspired you to think twice when your hear the word "orphan."
Our paperwork was filed with The Ministry in Ukraine on May 5. We are praying for a court date soon. Will you join us in praying for things to move quickly and smoothly and that NONE of the political issues with their government will affect our process? Our boys need to come home SOON. Our summer needs to be spent TOGETHER.
Should we need to fly 3 times to Ukraine, it will be more expensive. If things move quickly, perhaps we can only fly once, or twice at the most.
Thank you for your prayers, your donations, and your SHARES. You have NO IDEA how much this support has meant to us. And to our boys.
Juliet & André
