This is Valya, the young lady that we would like to adopt. She is at the Andreyevo-Ivanovka orphanage. We believe that she is 11 or 12 years old. She was a friend of the Tolly girls.
There doesn't seem to be much out on the blogs about Andreyevo. We've been told not many adoptions happen there. That's too bad, because it looks like there are some great kids there.
Andreyevo is about two hours away from Odessa. We know it would be simpler to find a girl in Odessa, because we will already be there to get Sergei, but how could we say no to her?
We are currently looking for people who have had contact with Valya.
