There are 450 orphanages in Ukraine that house over 100,000 orphans. These children are the lucky orphans . . . more than 100,000 of Ukraine’s orphans live on the street. Sadly, at age 16, children in orphanages “graduate.” Of those children who are not adopted into families and leave at age 16, 60% of the girls turn to prostitution to earn a living; 70% of boys turn to a life of crime. A shocking 10% commit suicide.

But there are alternatives. Ukraine Orphan Outreach works to get forever homes for these children. The non-profit company accepts donations to help families desiring to adopt Ukrainian children. Those interested in adopting or in helping families are invited to peruse the website for additional information.
