It’s been a while since we posted here but if you’re the praying type, then please remember us in Ukraine. If Russia invades Ukraine... children will be rendered fatherless. An already depressed economy will tailspin resulting in a significant increase in "social orphans" and a likely decrease in the number of workers serving them. Already inadequate government services for orphaned and vulnerable children will be curtailed. Abuse and trafficking will likely increase. Institutionalized children in affected areas fortunate enough to get out of harm's way will swell the ranks of overburdened locations in other parts of the country. And, another generation of Ukraine's fathers and young men, will be lost. And for several reasons, outside of a miracle, we will remain here.
