FRONTIER HORIZON INC
May 17, 2011

We used Dima Subotenko, a staff member of Frontier Horizon as our facilitator when we adopted our first daughter from Ukraine in 2004. Dima told us about Frontier Horizon's hosting program, so we subsequently decided to host and or sponsor many children since then. Hosting provides orphan children with the chance to become part of a family for 3-4 weeks during the Christmas season or the summer. They receive much needed love, attention, good nutrition, clothes, hygiene, medical/dental/ vision care and the chance of a lifetime to possibly find a family that will love them forever. At very least the plight of these children becomes personal to all who meet them when they are here and they can be helped in country to have a better future. Instead of just viewing a picture or a T.V screen, people meet the orphans and become sensitized to their desperate circumstances. At the age of 16 these children leave the orphanages with no housing, family, financial support, education or job prospects. Most end up in prostitution or criminal activities to survive. Some end up taking their lives in despair. Such a life of deprivation is difficult for most of us to imagine until you meet the children and hear their stories....What strikes you is that they are just like your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and you cannot conceive of them suffering in these ways. Those involved with Frontier Horizon have said it doesn't have to be this way and they have done something about it. God willing many will join them in their noble and courageous efforts to help those who cannot help themselves so that someday they in turn can help others.

The Great!

Through Frontier Horizon we met our third child Anya. After only one year she is an almost straight A student, involved in dance, tennis and piano and has adjusted to our family like she has always been with us. There are many Anya's languishing in orphanages through out Ukraine just waiting to be given the chance to belong and flourish. How can we thank Frontier enough for giving these children such an opportunity- to know that they are cared about and wanted, so they can have hope and a future.

The only change would be to have many more involved in this great organization by giving their time, money and networking skills to save the lives many more children. The need is so great but the workers are few...
