The Emelyantsev Family--Tooele, UT


The Emelyantsev Family--Tooele, UT

The Emelyantsevs are a LDS family.  Dad is originally from Novosibirsk, Russia and speaks fluent English and Russian.  Luka will be coming home to a house full of sisters!  Three sisters, the oldest of whom is 1o years old and has Down syndrome, are anxiously awaiting their new brother.   All of the children understand and speak Russian moderately, so Luka's adjustment will be very much eased by that fact.

The Emelyantsev family has just completed their adoption of our little Luka in Russia, so are attempting to do simultaneous international adoptions!   We are thrilled that Luka's adoption is finally complete, and that he was saved from life in a mental institution.  Now we pray for Kolya to make it home quickly too!

Dad has a Master's Degree in Genetics (perfect!) and works as a Registered Nurse.  Mom is a paralegal in their church office.  Their community and school have rallied around their daughter with DS, and they are excited to provide Kolya with the same kind of love, support, encouragement, and "the sky is the limit" opportunities that he so deserves.

As many of you know, Russian adoptions are some of the most costly.  We ask for your special consideration in sponsoring this family!  Won't you please help this wonderful family bring Kolya home?
