We welcome Judy in Kiev and hope her visit will be enjoyable
IHS program director, an author of 4 volumes of the Files Guide to Child Welfare and the member of the ILDC Board Judy Rycus has arrived to Kiev this Friday. Judy has played a major role in promoting best practice in Child Welfare of Ukraine. IHS trainings programs have been broadly used across Ukraine and beyond. We are very privileged to have these programs as they help us to promote best practice in the area of Child Welfare in Ukraine.
New 12 adoptive and foster families went through training for adoptive and foster families on May 11th -13th in Kriviy Rig. These families have already adopted children. During the training we found out that most of them are willing to adopt more children from the orphanages.
The participants of the training were eager to learn new skills and new information. After the training, local churches have expressed interest in finding out more about the work with families and orphans.
We have learned that there is already a growing interest in adoption among people which we meet from different churches in Ukraine. When people find out that they can do something good for the orphans in Ukraine and it can make a difference in their lives, many turn to us for more information and counsel how they could be of help.
