During the past couple of weeks, I’ve heard from two different people about a group that is bringing Ukrainian orphans to the U.S. this summer and is in need of host families. The group is called “Red Line United” and here’s a snapshot of what this group is doing:
“In Summer 2010, we will be bringing 10-20 children from Jonkoi orphanage in southern Ukraine to spend three weeks living with families in the Raleigh, NC. These orphans will be ages 9-14, an age where it is difficult to impossible to find adoptive familes. The program’s main goal is to expose children to families that may be interested in adoption, and we need your help to find families!”
If you are at all interested in adoption or if you have a heart for providing three-week foster homes for these children, or if you just want to help this organization in their work, click here to learn more about how you can get involved: http://www.redlineunited.org
As a side note, I recently found a link to a blog run by one of my former high school teachers, Bill Finley, and his wife about their adoption experience. They adopted a little girl from — you guessed it — the Ukraine! And what makes it even more special — they adopted after having hosted the girl through a program similar to the Red Line United program. Here’s a link to their story: http://www.finleylifetothefull.com It is truly amazing what God can do when one family agrees to step up and help make a difference! Are you being asked to help? Why not prayerfully ask God to speak to you today about it?
