<span class=Apple style=font-size: small; font-family: Calibri;><span class=Apple style=font-size: 13px;>In Search of a Family: A Story of an International Adoption&nbsp;takes the reader inside a personal journey through the&nbsp;unknowns of an international adoption. This true story&nbsp;takes place in the ex-Soviet bloc country of Ukraine. As&nbsp;they travel through this young, independent republic,&nbsp;Kevin and Ginger Carlisle encounter numerous obstacles&nbsp;that could derail their hopes of achieving their dream of&nbsp;creating a new family. Braving Ukrainian election tensions&nbsp;and protestors, heartbreaking events, financial concerns,&nbsp;and changing adoption policies, they navigate the&nbsp;emotional and psychological maze of the bureaucracy and&nbsp;physical logistics of an international adoption. An eleventh&nbsp;hour attempt by the children's family member jeopardizes&nbsp;their attempt in searching for a family. The Carlisles endure&nbsp;the hardships of the language barrier and infrastructure but&nbsp;are able to uncover the little-known beauty of Ukraine and&nbsp;its people, all while placing their life in the United States&nbsp;on hold. As their destiny patiently waits, they keep reciting&nbsp;the mantra of all those who had come before them: Keep&nbsp;your focus on the goal of bringing home your children.</span></span>
