ROCKLIN - Rocklin residents Roman and Krystna Kravchuk are ready to dive into parenting. The rooms for their two adopted Ukrainian children, 10-year-old Andre and 3-year -old Katya, are all ready to go.
The couple is heading to the country, but they are worried about getting their children out safely.
Roman and Krystna will be heading to Ukraine, directly into the conflict zone of Kiev, to finalize all of the paper work for the adoption.
"We are taking a leap of faith and doing what is not comfortable for us, but just showing the love to those kids," said Roman Kravchuk.
The couple said the adoption process was moving smoothly until the uprising in the country began. With tension at a high level, they don't what to expect when they travel next week.
"We have a lot of friends in the Ukraine," Krystna said. "All of our family, grandma, aunts, uncles and so we worry about their future altogether."
The couple hopes the unrest in Ukraine ends peacefully. As for their children, they are hoping to be back home in five weeks as a family. They know it won't be easy, but parenting never is.
