Lifeline has had an adoption program in Ukraine since 2001. Lifeline has a rich and long history in adoptions from this country, and while this is not an easy country to adopt from, Lifeline’s families are truly called to children from Ukraine. There are many children and sibling groups available for adoption from Ukraine with minor to significant medical and developmental special needs. Ukraine is unique in that it does not maintain a waiting child list, but is a country that has what is called a blind referral process.
Older children, above age 5, are available for international adoption due to Ukraine adoption law.
How We Help
Lifeline works to educate and prepare families for adoptions of older children, including teenagers. We strive to educate families on challenges that are experienced with older child and multiple child adoptions.
