Ukraine News

Have you heard the news about adoption in Ukraine? If not, here is the offical release from the US State Department…

Ukraine Adoption Notice

Bureau of Consular Affairs
Office of Children’s Issues

November 3, 2010

The Ukrainian legislature is in the process of voting on a bill that would suspend all intercountry adoptions from countries without bilateral agreements with Ukraine, including adoptions from the United States. The bill passed a first reading and vote, but must still pass a second reading and be signed into law by the president. The second reading could take place in the next few weeks. If the bill passes the second reading, it may be signed into law as early as the end of 2010. The draft bill appears to include suspension of all adoptions in progress.

The Department is will post updates as information becomes available.

Scary stuff. But, everyone has told us to proceed as usual. And I would like to share some sage advice with you…

  1. Ok I have to laugh for so many reasons.1. Because I havent laughed in days. This vote has me a MESS! 2. Nemo aka Neh-mo is our girl's favorite movie. We borrowed 29398393.2 dvd's in Russian, and she watched Neh-mo for 3 weeks straight.3. I needed Dory's message today, and her high pitched voice sounds like our girl when she speaks English. In Russian she sounds so deep, but in English its very high… just like DorySo thank you for the laugh and the message, I just need to keep on swimming…
