They need you now!

On December 15, 2010 Kazakhstan suspended intercountry adoptions stating a review of adoption policies was needed and there needed to be reform in the process. When word of this first broke, Kazakhstan had said that all would be well by March 2011 and dossiers would be accepted once again. It is March and nothing is happening.

The effect this will have on Kazakhstan's orphans is heartbreaking to us. In a recent Washington Times article, Andrea Poe points out that

"Even better orphanages in Kazakhstan are underfunded and must feed, clothe and shelter their charges for around three cents a day per child. The result is that orphans here tend to be less developmentally advanced than their American counterparts and are smaller due to malnutrition."

Please take a moment to watch this video and see how Two Hearts is making a difference in the lives of these children. We need your help now more than ever to continue our mission. We thank each and every person who has supported us over the years!
