Hi, we adopted 2 girls ages 5 and 9 in 2007. The younger has health issues. I knew the girls from previous business trips to Ukraine and and first tried to get the younger medical help. The adoption process was difficult due to legal issues. There were many things I didn't understand about the adoption process and maybe a few I didn't agree with in part due to my lack of understanding in spite of being very experienced in UA. However, I can say very seriously that the adoption would have been delayed for a long period of time or been deemed impossible if it weren't for the experience of Oleg. I am sure other facilitators might have failed.
Again, thx Oleg.
Suggestions to make your trip easier.
Ask drivers to drive safely.
Tip taxi drivers to drive within the speed limits. They don't get paid much and make money by driving as many miles as they can.
If there are problems, try and discuss things directly with Oleg.
If things aren't going well, give yourself some time out to relax and think things over.
Time has different meaning in Ukraine than in the US. Budget for the unexpected.
I am very thankful to have our girls. Thx Oleg.
