Finally I can share two more adoption success stories coming from my sister and neighbors who adopted independently in 2014.
As an experienced adopter (I adopted twice from Ukraine) I was helping our neighbors and then my sister adopt from Ukraine. They finally completed their adoption and came back home with kids this year !!!
Both of them adopted generally healthy sibling groups: 7 and 10 year old joined our neighbors family and my sister adopted a set of three kids: 4, 6 and 13 y.o..
So based on my and their experience, I can say that in terms of timing, expenses and kids available, Ukraine remain one of the best countries for those who are open to adopt sibling groups accepting kids from 16 months to 12 y.o. or older.
Of course just like any other country Ukraine has its own peculiarities҅.
You can learn more about Ukraine adoption from my posts here:

Cathy, I can't figure out how to PM you. I was ready to start my adoption process in Ukraine but this post if the first thing I have seen that has a successful adoption story from Ukraine since 2014. All the success stories seem to be older and I am having a hard time getting current information as the situation there seems to be changing rapidly. My e-mail address is Please e-mail me so we can communicate. I am desperate to hear some good, recent stories.
