Below is a letter from Alexander (Sasha) D’Jamoos, an advocate for orphans. He asks for all of our assistance in helping the Russian government understand the importance of adoption. Please read his words below and consider helping.
My name is Alexander (Sasha) D’Jamoos. I was adopted from Russia 5 years ago. Today, I am a student at the University of Texas studying Government and Russian Studies. I have been advocating for orphaned children.
Last January, we created a Facebook page, "Orphans Without Borders". The purpose of the page is to support adoption by sharing wonderful stories of families and their adopted children from around the globe. This page is very important in that it actually reaches the audiences in Russia who may otherwise not be familiar with the joy and happiness that adoption brings to children.
I need more stories in order to continue supporting the children and American families who cannot complete their adoptions in Russia due to the adoption ban. All that is required is a family photo with a small story attached OR a picture of an individual holding a sign "Orphans Without Borders".
I sincerely hope that you can spread this among the families around the globe! Please, support this important mission and ask everyone to send the stories to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
