|In October of 2001 we completed our adoption in Ukraine thanks to the assistance and help of a great group of people that make up IUAFN - Independent Ukrainian Adoption Family Network.
IUAFN was started by a dedicated group of families that had completed their Independent Adoptions with the help and guidance of Cathy Harris.
We were the 401's family that Cathy helped.
|Our adoption story began in September of 2000. We began exploring the different options open to us to creat the family we knew we wanted. Adoption seemed a fabulous idea and we almost immediately zeroed in on Ukraine as we liked the idea of meeting the children and interacting with them before deciding we would be a family.
