The couple had often discussed adopting but hadn’t made plans of any sort until a friend of Anita’s, Eugenia, started making pleas on Facebook about hosting three children from Ukraine. Eugenia, born in Ukraine, had a deep passion for finding a home for these children. She and her husband were in the process of adopting a child from Ukraine who happened to be very close friends with one of the children needing to be adopted.
