I want to be able to have that kind of love. As I grow older and hopefully have a family of my own someday, I pray that I have the opportunity to adopt a child and provide a family who really cares about them and will lead them to Jesus.

Lucia was born in Donetsk, Ukraine and became an orphan at 6. She spent a decade in a mental institution where she witnessed and experienced abuse. At 16, she was adopted and began her journey to healing.
She has a heart to explain to others the conditions that orphans are facing when no one is looking and sees the great pain in adoptive families as parents try to connect to their children. Past trauma often comes out in behavior.
