Episode: Fostering Biracial Orphans in the Heart of the Ukraine
Olga Nenya, from a small Ukrainian town, is raising 16 black orphans in a country of Slavic blue-eyed blondes. The reality of growing up as a bi-racial child in Eastern Europe — a rare and truly visible minority — is not for the faint of heart. These children always have to be on guard against the world that surrounds them.• Visit the Fostering Biracial Orphans in the Heart of the Ukraine webpage
