Ukraine Adoption Blogroll

My favorite blogs from 1997 to 2005 are found here and include some single adoptive parent blogs. This blogroll will contain recent 2006 and 2007 Ukrainian adoption blogs. I will try to update it once a week (or more if I find interesting blogs).

The date/time stamp on this blog will indicate when it was updated. If I add a link or a family’s status changes, I will mark it with *NEW*.

Post a comment below or email me at adoptukraineblog@adoptionmail.com if you have a blog and want it added to the list.

I love Reece’s Rainbow. I have known this charity’s founder, Andrea Roberts, via email for some time. She features families who are adopting Down’s children like the Saunders.

People who feel moved to donate to a family’s adoption can do so. I have felt moved to donate money a couple of times. As an added bonus, the donation is tax deductible.

If you have limited time, I would suggest reading a rose by any other name…, Something funny…, going to Mycraine and some MoldovAnn blogs.

    Hi. I AM IRISH LIVING IN SWITZERLAND. HOPEING TO ADOPT FROM THE UKRAINE. HERE IN SWITZERLAND IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO MAKE CONTACT WITH PEOPLE IN THE SAME SUITATION. I WOULD BE VERY GRATFULL FOR INFO. IS IT VERY DIFFICULT AT THE MOMENT? WOULD RUSSIA BE EASER?
    WE WOULD ALSO BE INTERESTED IN THE COST OF THE ADOPTION.
    WE WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT A LITTLE GRIL OR SIBLINGS IF POSSIBLE.
    WE SOULD HAVE OUR PERMIT BEI XAMSS AT THE LATEST.
    MANY THANKS
