Summer Ukraine Hosting Program

We're hosting a 14-year-old girl from a Ukrainian orphanage from July 13th through August 15th.

This trip is an opportunity for her to spend part of her summer with a family in America and meet families, including those who may be interested in adoption.

The money we're raising will be used for her travel to and from Ukraine via Indianapolis, visas, and other costs like background checks and a home safety check to get us and her prepared. We will also use some of the money for small purchases for her, trips etc. 

This opportunity is very close to our heart. This girl is from the same region in Ukraine where Oleg, Sveta and Marina, our adopted children, are from and the same orphanage where Oleg lived before they came to us in 2009.



We felt called to step out in faith when we heard that she did not have a host family and would be unable to come to America.

Our kids are excited to have her with us and we’re hopeful this will be a life changing visit for her, and for us.

We hope you’ll join us in this next chapter in our adoption story! We’ve been blessed in so many ways, and see this as a special opportunity to bless this young girl.
