Ukraine: Bad News For Ukraine's Orphans

Cristin of the Ukrainian Adoption Blog writes that due to heartless red tape, those willing to adopt Ukrainian children should better consider other countries: “If you aren't already completely committed to Ukraine, now is the time to look around. If you haven't even started the dossier process, do not start unless you know going in that it will likely be at least a year or longer before you travel. I'm crying inside for all the orphans in Ukraine. Their chance for a family is ticking away. The only hope now is political pressure.”
