Since October 18, 1998, when I returned home with my third adopted Ukrainian toddler. I have gave "Personal Advice" to OVER 875 families who have adopted 1176 children from Ukraine independently. Below you can read a short story about how I met the families and see a picture of their child/children that they adopted. Since some families feel adoption is private, I will not reveal any names of the families as well as the names of the children. However, if there is any reason that you would like to make contact with these families. You can send me a e-mail with the request, and I can ask them if they would like to discuss their adoption with you.

Family #1 

This family lives in Florida. We met because we had both used the same Florida attorney for our first adoption. Neither one of us were very happy with the services that we received nor the price that we were charged. She returned to Ukraine in November 1998 and adopted this cute little boy. He was 3 years old and very loving and sweet. This picture was taken at the orphanage.

Family #2 

This family is also from Florida. I met them through the flight stewardess on the plane home from Ukraine in October. She said that her friend was adopting from Russia, and was having a lot of problems. So I gave her my phone number to pass it on. On October 20, 1998 (Just two days after I got home) this family called me. They changed their Immigration papers from Russia to Ukraine and adopted this beautiful girl in December 1998. She was 2.5 years old.

Family #3 

This family is from Georgia. I met them through the internet. She had the same story that Family #2 had. (Problems with a Russian adoption) I told her that I did not know how to tell her to change her papers from Russia to Ukraine, but I could introduce her to the other family and she could help her. They got everything change and left for Ukraine on January 28, 1999 to adopt this gorgeous little baby girl. She had her first birthday while they were there.

Family #4 

This family is from North Carolina. I met them on the internet and we became very close friends. They were childless and their hearts were aching for a child. But with the cost of adoption, that held them up. Until they found me. They left on February 27, 1999 and adopted this handsome 2 year old boy. Since they been home, they have adjusted very well with their new son, and could not be happier.

Family #5 

This family is from Iowa. I met them on the internet and e-mailed them the package of information on how to complete a independent adoption. I have to say, that this family just took the information and handled all their paper work with very little help. I was shocked when they called and said that they were ready to leave for Ukraine. I had no idea that they had got that far in their paperwork so fast. They left on February 28, 1999 and adopted a little girl that I knew from the orphanage. She was 3 years old, and is doing fine with her new "forever" family.

Family #6 

This family lives in New York. I have to say that I took this families adoption to heart. We are 'VERY' close and there was nothing that I wouldn't do to help her adopt. She had gone through many years of infertility treatments and could not conceive. And then once they decided to adopt, they experienced 'several' failed adoptions. This was one of my 'trophy' adoptions. I HAD to make sure that this family was taken care of because I did not want to disappoint them. I am proud to announce that on March 11, 1999 they boarded a plane to Ukraine to adopt this perfect 3 years old little munchkin. They plan on returning to Ukraine in the near future to adopt yet another child to build their family.

~Update~This family returned to Ukraine to adopt another child in May 1999. They returned home with this beautiful 1 year old girl. (The picture is a current picture of their son, with their new daughter) Now they are one big happy family.

~Update~ I am extremely happy to announce that my dear friends, Family #6 has adopted yet another Ukrainian Angel. The moment they returned from their first adoption trip in March, 1999, she just knew in her heart that there was a third child waiting for them somewhere in Ukraine. This handsome 25 month old little boy was patiently waiting for his family in the Trans Carpathian Mountains. His smile and Shining personality won their hearts. Needless to say this darling little boy's Momma, Poppa, big brother and sister and just thrilled beyond words that he has joined their happy family. Its' the stuff that dreams are made of....

Family #7 

This family is also from New York. They are related to Family # 6. (Sisters) I did not have much communication with her about her adoption throughout the process, since her sister handled everything for her. They traveled together, so she also left on March 11, 1999 heading to Ukraine to adopt a gorgeous 2 year old boy.

Family #8 

This family is from Tennessee. I met her on the internet on December 28, 1998. I saw a post that she had written regarding international adoptions and responded. Since then we became very close friends. I was shocked and amazed that she managed to get her paper work done 'very' quickly and left for Ukraine on March 27, 1999. (Yup, just 3 short months) They adopted this adorable, perfect 10 month old baby boy. And then she even amazed me more, because she completed her adoption in Ukraine in 2 weeks and 3 days. (Some people have all the luck) Since she has been home, I tease her and renamed her 'The Ukrainian Goddess.'

Family #9 

This family is from Pennsylvania. They returned home from Ukraine with TWINS. A boy and a girl that are 5 years old. I met them also from the internet, and helped them throughout the paperwork. We have also became good friends, and spend 'many' of late hours on the phone just chatting. They plan on returning to Ukraine to adopt TWO more boys who are the brothers of the children they already adopted. They are such a wonderful family to have the heart to want to keep the children together.
