Review for Frontier Horizon Inc, Virginia Beach, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The first time I found out about Frontier Horizon was when I was 9 years old living in an orphanage #4 in Odessa, Ukraine. Vincent Rocini was in charge of the program, well at least that's what we all thought at the time. He wasn't only trying to get as many kids adopted as possible but he was also helping us to have the necessary things in life like clothes and shoes. He is truly an amazing man! He did a greater impact than that. He has changed my life forever.
My situation was a little more difficult than other kids because I still had a birth mother who just got out of jail and wanted to make sure I wouldn't get adopted. She has not tried to be in my life and my dear grandmother was the one who actually raised me since I was a baby. That is why I didn't actually get adopted until I was 13 years old.
Vinny tried to help my situation and we became really good friends!
I finally got adopted at age 13 and I am still thankful to him for changing my life dramatically.
I am so glad to know there is such a great nonprofit organization that cares for children who's chances in becoming a successful adult are very limited. Today, I live a great life and have every opportunity in life I could ever imagine and it's all thanks to Frontier Horizon.
I want to thank them for everything they are doing and I myself plan to help them out next summer when they go to Ukraine to help kids like me!!!
