Alyosha, a former orphan from Kalinovka orphanage without limbs who was adopted by an American family in 2012, is now enjoying his life to the fullest: he plays hockey and swims. Logans foster mom (thats Alyoshas new name) Julie posts updates on her sons progress on her blog.

Logan is trying out his new artificial legs:

Logan is doing his homework:

Logan is dusting:

Logan is playing hockey:

By the way, for the last 2, 5 years foreign families adopted eight orphans with special needs from the orphanages in Kalinovka and Velikiy Lug whereas our countrymen have never adopted a single child with severe disabilities for forty years!

I feel bad for those who still spread scary myths about foreign adoptive parents whose goal is to sell orphans internal organs. I also feel sad for Russians who banned Americans from adopting their orphans.

Id like to believe that one day foreign adoption will vanish not because of any restrictions and prohibitions, but because Ukrainians will welcome into their families all orphans, including children with special needs.
