Mykhaylo and Liudmila joined the Fathers House Family Care Program in the Spring of 2021.
They were placed with six older teenagers, together with their own two children they have created a beautiful Fathers House family. The children are happy and excited to make new memories with such great caregivers.
Children cook, bake, create new recipes, play games, divide house responsibilities and take care of each other.
Special thanks to Anastasia Korniyko for helping tell the stories from Fathers House.
About SOW Sponsored home
In 2017 I photographed at Father’s house and It did not take long to understand why Jodi Jackson Tucker, International director for Orphan Sunday calls this special place in Kyiv, holy ground.
Sitting across from Roman and his daughter Anastasia in 2017 during a 1 1/2 hour interview, I heard stories that stirred my heart. Roman’s experiences were filled with unmistakable God moments that ultimately changed the life of this Ukrainian medical doctor. I listened in awe about the glimpse God gave Dr. Korniyko in 1995 of what orphans in his own city were experiencing. Children hiding in abandoned buildings, running in gangs, begging on the streets for food, atrocities too unspeakable for me to say. Through this glimpse, God gave Roman a heart that beats for saving the lives of children who have nowhere else to turn.
