A few folks have aske me if the Ukraine Orphan Outreach (UOO) summer camp kids can be housed in their homes. Unfortunately, no. UOO keeps the kids all together in a camp-style setting in two homes that are board member homes. You may, of course, participate in all the day's activities during our annual three week camp. Details to follow as we cement our camp schedule.
That being said, there is another organization that I am familiar with and that I help on occasion. Frontier Horizon has been bringing kids from Ukraine for years and can help if you desire to host a child in your home for the entire summer, a short summer stay or over Christmas holiday. If you are interested in hosting children through FH, visit the link in this post, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on this post for more information. As a "Rocky Mountain area helper", I can help get them to your home from DEN airport if you are in the state. Neighboring states would need to travel (any means, air, car, Am-track train) to Denver. East coast & east-Midwest residents can contact FH directly.
For an introspective on adoption, read the comment from Alycia...thank you Alycia!
By the way, Oksana & Vladik had a family step forward to host them this summer, thank you all who responded. There are more children without homes listed at FH's website. Take a look.
