There are 100,000 orphans in Ukraine, and they live together in 450 orphanages. Many other children are living on the streets because the orphanages are full. This is the story of one orphan, Grisha, and his adoption by an American couple.

The photo montage includes saying good-bye to friends in Ukraine, and saying hello to new friends and family in America. Grisha joined an entire family when his parents picked him up, including brothers and sisters. He has adjusted well, fitting in as just “one of the kids.” Orphans all over the world are needing homes and families to give them shelter, protection and love.
