We are now working on raising $ for the daily expenses while we will be in Ukraine for about 7 weeks. One day's expense (including lodging, transportation, and food) will be about about $50. Will you sponsor us for one day? The girls we are adopting are 15 and 17. We met Angelina, the younger sister (taller of the two) through a group that brings orphans from Ukraine to America for a cultural exchange program. We just fell in love and knew we could not let her go back to Ukraine to stay there and that we had to do everything we could to raise the $22,000 needed to adopt her before she turns 16 (after which she is un-adoptable). 60% of the girls that age out of the orphanages go into prostitution. In fact there are pimps waiting outside the orphanages for the girls that age out. We then found out that she has an older sister, Liza. and we wanted to keep them together so we are adopting two teenagers! They are super sweet girls and we get tot talk to them about 2 times a week. We are really hoping to be able to go get them in December and it looks like a strong possibility if things keep moving like they are. We have about $6,250 so far. Any ideas for fund raising? Maybe your kids could think of a way to raise $ to help rescue these girls! Any help is much appreciated! Jerret and Stacey Turner Stacey@turner.org
