Wide Awake International

Watch for www.wideawakeinternational.org launching soon!

God has given us a big dream.  

Our God-size dream is to open small therapeutic group homes for orphans in Ukraine that are bedridden.  

We dream of a place where the children can be taken out of their cribs and given physical therapy, occupational therapy, medical and dental care, great nutrition, plenty of one on one attention, and loving care. 

We dream of employing local Ukrainians and training them to care for their own.

We dream of finding forever families for the children entrusted to our care.

We dream of a network of many small group homes spreading throughout Ukraine and the rest of the former Soviet Union.

Wide Awake International was birthed to fund this huge dream.  Our eyes are wide open, our hearts are wide awake.  

“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

Matthew 19:26 


  1. Love this! We are in the process of adopting a little boy from orphanage 50 in Ukraine. We have hosted 3 times, 3 different boys from an orphanage in Lugansk. Our hearts are with the orphans of Ukraine! Will be following your story and hearts! WE have very similar families! We have 4 little ones, ages 5 and under. And the little boy we are adopting will be 11 next month. So so so happy to see God moving!

    1. Oh Monica, thank you for saying hi! Thank you for loving Ukrainian kiddos. I just stalked you on the RR website and will totally be following your blog! Hehe (I'm not a creepy stalker...)


We'd love to hear from you!
