Watch "Spirit of Adoption Sweeps Across Ukraine," a short and inspiring video report by George Thomas of CBN News:

On February 6-7, 2013, 556 delegates from across Eastern Europe gathered in Kyiv, Ukraine for the Eastern European Pastors Summit: Defending the Orphan, Changing the Future. With an interdenominational reach, the event brought together clergy and key leaders in the orphan care movement from across Eastern Europe. The Summit sought to inform and mobilize leaders and unify the strengths of the Church as a whole, so that together effective solutions for working with the orphans and children at risk in Eastern Europe can be found.

The 2-day Summit was organized at the initiative of the Alliance for Ukraine Without Orphans and the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches & Religious Organizations, with support from Christian Vision, Compassion International, and other Christian organizations. Many of the 556 delegates who attended the Summit are already actively caring for orphans, and together they represented a total of 816 children that have been taken into families. In addition to Ukraine, representatives came from Russia, Belarus, Romania, Moldova, Czech Republic, USA, England, Italy, India, as well as other nations.
