Help Natalia Host Ukrainian Orphan for Adoption

Meet Sasha, an orphan child from Ukraine. 

Our family and dedicated friends are working diligently to improve Sasha’s life and bring him to the United States  this summer. The hope is that once he is here, we will be able to help him find a loving American family willing to adopt him.

Sasha’s biggest dream is to become a mechanic and work on cars. His other dreams include visiting an amusement park, visiting a zoo, and seeing a real panda with his own eyes. 

The orphanage director describes Sasha as a wonderful, respectful young man. When our interview team met him, they immediately were drawn to him. He is introvert that gets along quickly with people. 
 
Sasha will turn 16 this September. It is imperative that we be able to bring him to the States and help secure a family for adoption before he does turn 16. After his 16th birthday, he will no longer be eligible to be hosted or adopted internationally and in the US.

If we fail to meet our goals and assist the adoption process before it's too late, Sasha's situation will become much more desperate. The possibility of adoption will be minimal after age 16, and at age 18 he will be forced to leave his orphanage. He will be sent out to survive alone without any meaningful support, education, or skills.

Unfortunately, the rate of polysubstance abuse, homelessness, early death due to suicide and substance overdose is exceptionally high amongst former Ukrainian orphans. 

We pray that Sasha becomes someone's Son soon, and not just another statistic like so many before him.

Please keep our family in your prayers. We will need financial support to be able to pay the hosting fee, that is $3100. If you can donate anything at all, we will be very grateful for that support. Every penny counts at these desperate final few weeks.
